Ruth Taylor is a super keen rock climber and experienced mountain instructor. She holds the MIA, Winter ML and IML qualifications. Ruth grew up in the Peak District and started walking and climbing with her family. She soon moved from the local outcrops to the mountains and sea cliffs around the UK and overseas. She has been working in the outdoors for 15 years, starting as an assistant instructor at her local centre in the Peak. For the last 6 years she has been based in North Wales, working during the summer for Plas y Brenin and spending the winters in Scotland working for Jagged Globe and a number of other providers. She also manages to fit a few climbing coaching trips to Spain.
She has climbed all over the world, from short trips to parts of Europe to a 10 week road trip around the USA. The highlights include going new route deep water soloing in Portugal, a trip to Arapiles and desert climbing in Utah.
