Sean James

High altitude climbing guide

The hills and moors of the Peak District National Park were a great training ground and he attributes his speed, endurance and technical ability to hours spent chasing friends along the top of Stanage.

Running his own company, Sean now organises and leads high altitude climbing and mountaineering expeditions worldwide having led over 14 8,000m expeditions to date.

Being based in both the French Pyrenees and Dubai, Sean states that getting outside and exploring new places whether it is climbing, running with friends, races or biking is still what he loves the most.

Sean’s experience speaks for itself and we cant wait to see what he next gets up to. Even if it does make us all very jealous!

Helicopter pilot and mountain lover

Finn McCann is an offshore helicopter pilot specialising in maritime operations, flying crew out to installations in the North Sea, often in adverse weather conditions.

Prior to becoming a pilot, Finn’s life revolved around climbing and mountaineering in which he consistently pushed himself from one challenge to another.

Having felt he had pushed his luck as far as he can and after meeting some helicopter pilots on a previous expedition, Finn decided this was the path he wanted to take.

We are honoured to have Finn on board and are in admiration of the level of skill he shows day in day out in what must be one of the coolest but difficult jobs in the world.
