Nomad Mountaineering Group
Nomad Mountaineering Group was setup by Mark Lewis - a professional mountaineering instructor, as a way of getting into the mountains with friends and also as a way of helping his students to develop their skills and practice what they have learn, without paying through the nose for it.
The club launched in January 2021 and is planning to actively arrange Summer and Winter mountaineering trips around Britain and Europe. We run all our events through our facebook group page and utilise that to be in regular touch with members and are very active in the group activities.
The formation of the group is really just a means of formalising the arranging of trips, and to encourage a wider circle to join in. We don’t use the club to offer training as that is part of what Mark does as his core business, however, we do have a lot of experience between us and will happily coach and develop people through experience whilst on group activities.
We are not elitist, and are happy whether you are keen on hill walking, climbing, mountaineering, or any other mountain activity.
The group is not just for Mark to organise events and activities, but to allow any group members to organise and run activities for the benefit of the club members. The club ethos is to encourage members to put their efforts into the organising of unusual or novel trips, so that members are offered the opportunity to walk or climb routes or visit places they haven’t been before.
