Matt Helliker

Matt’s life has been shaped by mountains and coastlines, from the sea cliffs of Great Britain to Scotland's winter mountains, the European Alps to the Greater Ranges of the Himalayas, South America and Alaska. Matt has become one of the UK’s most talented and accomplished alpinists, climber and IFMGA mountain guides of his generation, with a long list of hard and impressive first and repeat ascents to his credit. Matt grew up in south west England, discovering his passion for climbing on the region’s rich diversity of granite sea cliffs and limestone outcrops such as Cheddar Gorge in the Mendip Hills of Somerset.
