Hello and Welcome!
Croeso!

My name is Matt Jones

About Me? 

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 climbed and 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).

I, as GO Vertical owner strive to give you the best product:

  • Focussed on YOU: I deal personally with every single booking from enquiry to delivery. If you send a message, it will be me that replies.

  • Safe Enjoyable Learning, leaving the egos at home.

  • I pride myself and invest heavily in only using high quality equipment - responsibly sourced wherever possible.

  • Award winning approach to minimising our environmental and carbon footprint
