ABOUT ME

MATT JONES

"Hello, and Welcome! Croeso!

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 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).

WHY GO VERTICAL?

Quite simply to give you the best possible Introduction, Progression, and Training in Rock Climbing, Mountaineering and Gorge Walking possible: 

  • 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

  • We pride ourselves and invest heavily in only using high quality equipment - responsibly sourced wherever possible

  • Award winning approach to minimising our environmental and carbon footprint

Please take a look around and do get in touch if you have any questions.
