Vertical Fever

Whether tackling Ben Nevis, traversing the mighty Skye Cuillin Ridge or scaling giant Himalayan summits. Vertical Fever delivers bespoke mountain instruction, guiding and expeditions providing you with a safe and rewarding adventure in the mountains.

Mountain Instructor & Guide, Fort William, Scotland

Vertical Fever is a friendly, professional mountain guiding company run by qualified Mountaineering Instructor, Steve Holmes. More than anything we pride ourselves on the high quality of the guiding and training we provide. In busy periods we occasionally use other qualified Instructors and Mountain Guides known personally to us to ensure we deliver that high quality and continue to help turn your dreams and ambitions into reality.

Vertical Fever is based out of Fort William, where we enjoy excellent access to the UK’s highest mountain; Ben Nevis. Standing at a lofty 1345m above sea level, ‘The Ben’ dominates the skyline just a couple of miles South East of Fort William. It is here our mountain guides and instructors spend most of their time be that on the huge multi-pitch rock climbs or world renown snow and ice climbs.


Vertical Fever also operates in the surrounding area of Glencoe where there are many classic routes to challenge the aspiring mountaineer. Glencoe is possibly most famous for housing the best mainland ridge in the UK; the Aonach Eagach. At nearly 10km long with exposed sections of scrambling and climbing, this iconic route should be on everyone’s ‘to do list’.


A large portion of Vertical Fevers Spring / Summer season is spent on the atmospheric Isle of Skye where mountaineers take on the challenge of Scotland’s toughest summits and most iconic mountaineering challenge the Skye Cuillin Traverse. These technical mountains are not for the faint-hearted, why not allow one of our mountain guides or instructors to safeguard some of that risk and make your adventure all that more enjoyable.


Occasionally, we also offer amazing expeditions to faraway places such as Africa and the Nepalese Himalaya, please browse the Adventure section of the website to see if one of our local Fort William mountain guides or instructors can provide you with an amazing experience which you will savour for a lifetime.
