A little bit about Mike Mason

Instructor photo

Hi I’m Mike, a climber, geologist and folk musician originally from North Yorkshire. After a few years climbing across Europe, in Russia and Oman I came to the Ice Factor in March 2016, I’m here to improve my summer and winter climbing and get to know the Scottish Highlands better.

Disciplines: Rock Climbing, Ice Climbing, Guiding

First Summer Climb

Crystal Wall at Ravenswick Quarry, North Yorkshire. On a climbing evening in the scouts.

First Winter Climb

Hidden Chimney

Hardest Route You Have Ever Done

Subduction zone E4 5c at Ardnamurchan. Although Desperation Crack a Yorkshire Grit HVS off-width was much much harder!

First Fall

I didn’t really trust cams until I took my first, second, and third fall onto one in the same evening off the Jabberwocke at Brimham.

Favourite Piece of Equipment

Tricams and a flask of coffee.
