A guided winter ascent of Curved Ridge, Glencoe

We had a fantastic day with Matt, a super friendly and competent guide provided to us by Abacus Mountain Guides. Curved Ridge was a perfect objective and my friends loved it!

As a group of four friends, we took a 3-day winter mountaineering course with Mike Pescod from Abacus Mountain Guides in January 2017. Mike is a fully-qualified international IFMGA mountain guide and throughout our entire trip with him, this showed. He displayed an incredible knowledge of the terrain, weather conditions, local flora, fauna and geology, in addition to making us... More

On the day of the tour my girlfriend and I arrived at the Ben Nevis Inn in the morning. After a few minutes our guide, Sally, arrived. She introduced herself and asked us if we had some waterproof clothing with us. Unfortunately we did not, but we started the walk anyway. Sally is an incredible guide, she made us feel... More

Abacus Mountain Guides made a challenge an incredibly enjoyable experience - from the preparation (clarifying what was needed in terms of equipment and training) through to pacing and encouraging us on the day, when your guide knows the route like the back of their hand there isn't a single question they can't answer and it made a material difference. That... More

I booked Abacus to guide me up Ben Nevis on my birthday. Sally was a brilliant tour guide and very patient with my slow progress! I don't think I would have made it to the top without her encouragement, and her technique of distracting me with some local history or nature knowledge every time I started to struggle was very...

I want to thank Sally for the great Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike trip. It was the best adventure I ever had, both in terms of sheer pleasure, good companionship and as a learning experience.

I have climbed with Mike and Abacus for a number of years and I can honestly say he is the best guide that I have ever climbed with. Mike's enthusiasm and knowledge are second to none but perhaps as important is his ability to instil confidence and to remain patient when tackling routes at a grade new to his clients.... More
