Jon Roberts

Jon Robert

Jon was fortunate to grow up near the wild expanse of the New Forest and spent much of his youth jumping into streams, building rope bridges and zip slides, climbing trees (and occasionally falling out of them!).

Since then Jon’s quest for adventure has led him to explore many parts of the U.K. and the wider world. Highlights include climbing trips to Africa, Nepal and Greenland. In 2003, Jon led a highly successful expedition to Pamiagdluk Island in Greenland resulting in a new route on the world’s highest sea cliff and the ascent of a previously unclimbed summit.

Jon has worked as an outdoor instructor since 1999 and holds a number of National Governing Body qualifications including the Mountaineering Instructor Award (MIA) and an outdoor based first aid qualification.

Dawn Roberts

Dawn Robert

Dawn has accompanied Jon on many of his adventures, even some that have taken her away from her beloved Wales! She was born in west Wales and knows her homeland intimately. Dawn likes to explore every facet of Wales through walking, climbing and canoeing. Most winters she goes winter walking and climbing in Scotland. Further from home, Dawn has walked and climbed in the Czech Republic, Croatia, Spain, New Zealand and Nepal.
