MATT JONES ROCK CLIMBING AND MOUNTAINEERING
COACH - INSTRUCTOR - GUIDE
"Hello, and Welcome! Croeso!
I started climbing as a teenager in the 1980s. Climbing became an obsession. I took a year out of university to focus on climbing, and began working as a Climbing Instructor over 20 years ago in Spain. Am still on my year out!
I have since worked all over the world, with many different organisations, including some of the most influential adventure training providers: National and Local Outdoor Education Centres; World Challenge; UK+UAE Military and Special Forces; Outward Bound; the Oil and Gas Industry (Mountain Safety).

"Matt’s calm and relaxed approach to teaching rock skills is one of the best parts of being instructed by him"
"Matt is a brilliant leader and teacher, and a super amazing person. He helped everyone in the group feel confident and comfortable and everyone took a lot away from the training course."
"As complete novices we were a little nervous but Matt's calm, reassuring and expert tuition put us all completely at ease."
