John McCune

I’m an Irish climber and Alpinist. I have been climbing since 2007 focusing mostly on traditional climbing and mountaineering.  At home in Ireland there is a small scene, and I have become dedicated and passionate about repeating hard routes, finding new ones, and generally climbing as much as I can. I love exploring new areas and the remote and wild places that Ireland has to offer.
 I enjoy a bit of everything, and I have climbed a lot of Scottish winter routes, Alpine Grand Courses, and skied some classic steep Couloirs around Chamonix.
 I am also a motivated instructor and have worked as an MIA for a number of years, and I am currently training to become an IFMGA guide with British Mountain Guides.
