"Paul did an outstanding job of leading the 2012 Dhaulagiri trek. His love and knowledge of the mountains was clear to see, and his enthusiasm and humour kept the spirits of the group high throughout the trip. Whilst we are fit and experienced walkers, Dhaulagiri was our first time at altitude, and Paul’s calm and competent leadership and experience ensured we felt well-informed and safe. Paul showed a continuous genuine interest in the health and morale of both the trekking group and the porter group.


Paul’s leadership skills were tested on two occasions during the trip: to coordinate helicopter evacuation of one of the group members who had fallen ill, and at the end of the trip to coordinate an unexpected 24hour overland adventure to transport the group from Jomsom when poor weather caused the airstrip to be closed. Paul rose to the challenge on both of those occasions, calmly and decisively taking control, and competently managing both problems to a successful conclusion. It was a fantastic trip, and Paul was a key person in ensuring it was safe, successful, and highly memorable."
