Ok, so be kind! This is my first attempt at making an instructional video, it's not perfect but it was interesting to make.
In the video I look at how to release a loaded guide plate, which you must, must, must know how to do safely if you use one.
I might make other videos, but only if I don't get too many "He's got a face for radio" or "He's got a voice for a book" comments!
(It's been a busy couple of weeks teaching leading and running a rock improver course, check out the Facebook page for more updates..)

"Jez was excellent and supported me with the various areas I wanted a refresher on. I went on to pass my ML assessment the following week!"
AS, Mountain Leader Refresher in N Wales
"Jez chose some fun routes but taught me heaps at the same time. All in all, I got loads out of today and really excited to carry on the multi-pitch and sea cliff climbing"
MA, Multipitch Day in Cornwall
"We had a great day Jez! It was incredibly worthwhile and we are looking forward to seeing you again before the assessment - would highly recommend you to anyone who wants to get out into the mountains!"
JA, SPA Refresher
"I did my training with Jez Brown, I couldn't have had better. Top trainer and all round top bloke - definitely recommended!"
GH, Instructor Training Course
"Jez was a perfect guide, and balanced the differing skills of two middle aged climbers so deftly that I didn't notice I was being managed. He showed enormous patience and passion for the activity, I'd have to say he was the best guide I've ever employed"
JG, Mountaineering Day in N Wales
"We had a fantastic time and couldn’t speak highly enough of Jez as a person and mountain guide. The experience would not have been the same without him there. Jez’s knowledge was brilliant!"
MW, Mountain Guiding Day in Snowdonia
