Climbing Instruction Guiding
Welcome to Mole Hills, the website of Andy Moles.
Fate dealt me the name. Like all tempting puns, I tried not to make it, but in the end I couldn't help myself.
I am a specialist Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor (WMCI), delivering quality instruction and guiding in climbing and mountaineering in the UK.
As well as information on my professional services, this site contains other thoughts and creative material: words, photos, videos, sounds. Mostly on topic and meant for inspiration, sometimes just for fun.
If you want to know a bit more about me, you can read it here.
Thanks for visiting. Have a look around.
