Pass and Peak was set up by myself in 2010, originally as a company dedicated to developing trekking tours in the Caucasus mountains of Russia, in partnership with Russian colleagues.

Since then access to those area’s has become more difficult, so I now concentrate on freelancing in the UK, as well as providing activities closer to home, both in Summer and Winter.
