Scott Umpleby

Scott has been climbing in the mountains for over 30 years. An early career in land surveying and cartography enabled him to pursue his passion for travelling to the wild, mountainous regions of the world. In the early 1990’s Scott then began leading and instructing groups in the mountains professionally, achieving his Mountaineering Instructors Certificate (MIC) in 1996. This work took him to all corners of the UK as well as across Europe, to North America, Nepal and Greenland – leading a number of successful expeditions to previously unclimbed peaks in this Artic wilderness.

While at home Scott also regularly competes in local hill and endurance running events. He completed a successful circuit of the Bob Graham Round in 1990, and in December 1999 completed the round again in winter conditions.

Scott is also currently Head of Fundraising for Brathay Trust, a charity that works to improve outcomes for vulnerable and disengaged young people using community sessions and adventurous activities.

Scott is also a member of the Alpine Club and Fell Runners Association.
