At  the Pat Falvey School of Mountaineering they invite and encourage you to learn new skills and to build on your existing skills. They  believe that walkers and climbers should be self sufficient on the mountains and hills for their own safety. These courses will open an entirely new, adventurous and safe Mountaineering world for you. For walkers they run fitness assessment, trek preparation, hillwalker progression and mountain navigation courses.

For climbers that would like to enhance their skills on camp craft, scrambling, rock-climbing and general rope-work techniques while also how to deal with the psychology of climbing big mountains. They also provide an Introduction to the logistics required for expedition planning and specialise in Expeditions and Seven Summit Peaks preparation.

“Believe in yourself, have dreams and goals, be positive, don’t quit, and change with changing circumstances.  Go for what you want with all of your capacity, strength and tenacity. I believe if you have these attributes your dreams and goals will in life become a reality. My mentors have taught me this from a early age and I have succeeded in making all my dreams come true.” Pat Falvey
