Aspire Mountaineering

Welcome to Aspire Mountaineering

Aspire Mountaineering is the trading name for me, Nigel Hooker. I offer tailored Mountaineering Instruction and guiding for individuals and small groups.

As an independent sole trader, free of the ties of a centre or accommodation base I can deliver a service matched to your needs and aspirations where and when you want it.

I am based in Kendal, on the edge of the Lake District National Park with fantastic terrain for all mountain activities on the doorstep. I also have a comprehensive knowledge of many other mountain areas and living minutes from the M6 motorway the mountain crags and sea cliffs of North Wales, the Grit stone edges and Limestone dales of the Pennines and Peak District and the wild expanses of Scotland are all within easy reach.

Aspire Mountaineering courses are personally delivered by Nigel Hooker but occasionally, in very busy periods and if clients have limited dates available, Aspire Mountaineering may use other instructors. These instructors are all very experienced, hold appropriate National Governing Body qualifications and have a passion for sharing their skills with others.
