Welcome to my site. I’m an outdoor instructor based in the UK who spends his time exploring mountains, coasts and rivers in search of adventure.
I hold the highest level rock climbing, summer mountaineering, and winter walking qualifications for the UK as well as being a qualified paddle sports coach.
When I’m not working you’ll find me off on adventures within the UK and further afield. Feel free to say “hi”. I’m always keen to meet new people and share stories.
Why not spend some time looking through my site to learn more about me or get in touch via the Contact page or with the information found at the bottom of this site.
In April 2017 I headed off to north east Greenland on an expedition to climb previously unclimbed peaks and take scientific readings of glacial ice to aid our understanding of climate change. One of my friends on the trip is certified blind which brought various challenges. Find out more about this trip on its website greenland2017.olivermentz.com or by clicking on the image below. Yu can also find more images at watch now the hookies.
