Always wanted to do point five gully for years, it was a close friend who recommended Abacus Mountain Guides and I definitely couldn't have chosen better. Mike looked after me from start to finish, the day was perfect and we had it all to ourselves. The climb was amazing so to was Mike enthusiasm plus his detail to our safety was very commendable and professional. There was never any moment I didn't feel in safe hands.
What a day I was shattered but so chuffed to have done a lifelong dream.
So a big smile and a huge thank you Mike

I really can't rate Abacus highly enough. My friend Neil and I booked the three day winter mountaineering course as a way of improving on and learning further winter skills,

Abacus catered the course exactly to what we had asked for! We spent two days in and around Glen Coe, taking on the Gearr Aonach zig-zags with Annie, and the curved ridge on Buchaille Etive Mor with Mike and Nils. Annie also took us for a day of winter skills in the Cairngorms which was absolutely fantastic.

For those who have a bit of experience but are looking to improve under professional and excellent teachers, Abacus is absolutely the way to go.

Thanks again guys!

If you are an ice or mixed climber, Scotland is THE place. Abacus was an absolute pleasure to work with, and Mike Prescod, my guide, was an amazing partner and leader for my first time in Scotland. I can't wait to return.
