Brendan Hanley is a passionate Mountain Leader with experience leading groups on adventures around the country. As a teenager he fell in love with the outdoors whilst climbing Snowdon on a blustery summer day in 1977. With trips to the Alps, Iceland and all over the UK, his love for the mountains has only grown and his ambition is to help others experience the incredible peace the outdoors can offer. He's not into achieving arbitrary targets for speed or distance, bagging summits, or "conquering" routes or mountains, instead enjoying simply being in touch with the majesty and beauty of the landscape and the weather and the sky above, and having a trip in harmony as much as possible with the mountains. Brendan is especially good at working with people who are a bit unsure of themselves in the mountain environment and need some gentle support and guidance.
