In 1923, George Mallory was asked by a reporter "Why do you want to climb Mount Everest?" and Mallory's response was "Because it's there". There is an overwhelming sense of achievement when you walk over that last crest and realise there is no more mountain to climb. The views from the top are spectacular. Looking out across the tops of other mountains, down through the glacial valleys and possibly out to sea. Head back to work after a long weekend in the mountains with a thirst for more, stories to tell and pictures to flaunt.
There are many famous peaks in the UK: Ben Nevis, Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Pen Y Fan to name the most famous. What ever your goal is, AT THE EDGE MOUNTAINEERING will endeavour to get you to the summit. Click on the area headings below for a list of mountain summits and guided mountain walks and take your pick. The list is not inclusive and if there is a summit or a mountain walk you really want to do and it's not on the list, contact me to arrange something.

The jagged peaks, steep rocky slopes and airy ridge lines will make anyone feel like a proper mountaineer when climbing to the summit of the peaks in Snowdonia. After all, Sir Edmond Hillary used these mountains to train for Mount Everest before his successful first ascent in 1953! There is something for everyone in North Wales so take your pick. Snowdon isn't the only mountain here!
THE LAKE DISTRICT

From the rolling grassy peak of Skiddaw to the rock strewn summit of Scafell Pike, the Lakes is a beautiful landscape with a wide variety of summits for all types of aspiring mountaineers. Steeped in mountaineering history and the inspiration for Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, join me in the lakes and lets create your own personal story from this remarkable place.

The mountains of Scotland are almost Alpine like in nature. Aspiring Alpine mountaineers come to Scotland to train for their big objectives in Europe and further afield. Home to Ben Nevis, the UK's highest mountain, Scotland is big step up from the mountains of England and Wales. Long mountain ridges, steep slopes and forgotten Glens can make anyone feel like an adventurer! Add to that the 282 Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000 feet) and there are a lot of possibilities to choose from!
All our advertised guided mountain walks will include an overall difficulty rating to help you choose which walk is best suited to you. The overall difficulty is calculated by adding the TERRAIN to the TECHNICAL difficulty and adding the FITNESS letter.
TERRAIN + TECHNICAL + FITNESS = OVERALL DIFFICULTY
