Hi all, I’m Chris Cowdrey. I’m a skier, climber, summer mountain leader and rock climbing instructor based in Somerset, England. 


I have spent many years hill walking, mountaineering and climbing all over the UK. I got into the outdoors at a very early age and have built up my experience over the years. From hill walking in the Lake District to Ski mountaineering in the French Alps, I have progressed and developed my personal skills to be able to deliver my courses in a safe and professional manner.

I am an Army Cadet Force Adult Volunteer and an expedition leader for Outlook Expeditions. I decided to start AT THE EDGE MOUNTAINEERING because of my love of teaching people new skills and seeing the joy that the mountain environment brings to others. 

A list of some of my favorite adventures in the mountains include:

Summer scramble: Pinnacle Ridge (St Sunday Crag, Lake District) 3

Winter Scramble: Aonach Eagach Ridge (Glen Coe, Scotland) II

Rock Climb: The Old Man of Hoy (Hoy, Orkney) E1 5b

Ice Climb: Clogwyn Left Hand (Clogwyn Du, North Wales) V,5/6

Alpine Climb: Cosmique Arete (Aiguille du Midi, Chamonix) AD

Ski descent: Middle Triffide Couloir (La Grave, France)

I hold the Summer Mountain Leader (MLS) and the Rock Climbing Instructors (RCI) NGB awards. I am a provider for the NNAS Bronze and Silver awards and am fully insured and have an enhanced DBS check. 

That's it for now, but feel free to contact me if you require any more information or if you have any questions. Click on the image above to go to my Mountain Training profile page.


See you in the mountains!
