About Mountain Pursuit
We aim to provide the highest quality bespoke courses and trips for you. These can take place throughout the UK, or occasionally, in Europe, to destinations like Rjukan (Norway) for icefall climbing or Spain for Spring/Autumn rock climbing. As such you may need to discuss your plans with us before booking.
Please feel free to either call us on 0114 233 5858 or contact us through the contact us section on this website. Please bear in mind that we need to consider availability of our staff and the possible itineraries available.
If you already know what you want, or you are ready to book, then you can fill in the relevant details on the book online page and make your booking. We will get back to you as soon as possible to confirm the details.
Your organiser & guide
Mountain Pursuit is owned and managed by Ian Loombe, who is directly involved in all aspects of the planning and delivery of your trip. Occasionally we use handpicked, qualified, professional, associates to help deliver our programmes.
Ian is an MIC holder and has worked in the outdoors for over 20 years. He is passionate about the mountains and if he isn’t climbing or mountaineering you’ll find him running in the fells.
Ian has climbed E6 on rock and grade VI in Winter as well as long and difficult routes in the Alps. Ian also enjoys the challenge of long distance fell running and he has completed the Bob Graham Round and the Paddy Buckley round (both in under 24 hours).
In addition, Ian works as a technical advisor and is a registered British Mountaineering Council Expert Witness.
Ian also runs his own events company and freelances for the Joint Services Mountain Training Wing in Scotland each winter delivering their full remit of training and assessment courses.
