About the Llanberis Guides' website
The Llanberis Guides' website is an access point for independent IFMGA mountain guides Ric Potter and Libby Peter.
Our ethos is one of professional guiding without losing the amateur
spirit for adventure, and our attention to safety will not detract from
sharing our passion for climbing with you. We have the highest professional
qualifications, however, first and foremost we are keen climbers
ourselves so we are confident you'll be appreciative of our depth of
experience and local knowledge.
Rock climbing and mountaineering have been central to Libby's life for
over 20 years. She has visited many of the major climbing areas in the
UK and worldwide, sampling all aspects of climbing from bouldering to
high altitude mountaineering and everything in between. In addition to
guiding and instructing Libby often writes articles for the
climbing press and is the author of Rock Climbing - the official
handbook of the Single Pitch and Mountaineering Instructor Awards. Contact Libby.
Ric started climbing in the early eighties, and soon moved to North Wales,
inspired by the great routes and vibrant climbing scene. Since then he has climbed and skied
in many areas of the world. Since 1991 Ric has worked as an instructor and guide, including spending 6 years living and working full time in the Alps. Ric now divides his time between rock guiding in Wales in the summer, and working as a backcountry ski and snowboard guide in the winter. Contact Ric.
