About Hugh Thornbery

My climbing experience, indoors and outdoors, spans several decades. I am a qualified mountain leader and rock climbing instructor with experience coaching both adults and children of all ages, as well as family groups and children's parties. I have given many people (both the confident and the nervous!) their first experience of climbing, as well as coached more experienced climbers to excel. I tailor my coaching precisely to the needs of my client, in every sense, and have experience and understanding of working with physical disabilities, neuro-diversity and mental health issues. 

I have climbed throughout the UK and Europe, Arctic Norway, the US and Himalaya. I'm just as much at home at the local climbing wall or bouldering gym.

I have had a long professional career working with children and families and as a leader at all levels, in a wide range of different settings.

Climbing Session for Scouts

Overall Rating

I used Hugh to run a climbing session for Scouts in Portland during the summer of 23.  It was one of the activities we ran for the scouts during our annual camp and it was voted the best camp activity by the scouts.  Hugh ran a morning and afternoon session.  He and a fellow instructor ran 3 ropes of varying difficulties on the sea cliffs and helped the scouts navigate the difficult parts of each climb.  Hugh is a genuinely good guy - his calm voice and instructions helped the scouts behave and have a lot of fun.  Thank you Hugh
