Hi there.


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 bespoke instruction and guiding in climbing and mountaineering activities in the UK.

As well as information on my professional services, this site contains other  thoughts and creative material. Maybe it's an experiment in the crossover between work and play, because when the machines take over, we really shouldn't care so much for the difference.

If you want to know a bit more about me, you can read it here.

Thanks for visiting. Have a look around.
