MOUNTAINEERING & CLIMBING COURSES
Back safely after our trip to Skye last week. We had a great time and it is a memorable experience. Both of our guides, Bruce & Ken, were excellent- professional and personable and they made our trip safe and enjoyable. I miss the mountains already. Outstanding views one day with grey summits for the rest! Hard to believe it’s over now-we are already looking forward to our next escape.
‘Just wanted to say thanks to Dave for a brilliant day out on Friday. He was really patient and helped me gain a lot of confidence in a short space of time. Amazingly he also managed to satisfy both our differing learning needs meaning we both had a great day in the mountains’
‘Just a quick note to say thanks and to let you know that, as I am sure you know, Matt was a really good guide. One of the best I have had’
What a tremendous couple of day! To be on Tower Ridge with that weather, words cannot describe it. I also can’t believe we had the place to ourselves for most of the day… A big thanks you.
What a tremendous couple of days!
Just to say thanks for organising the guiding for us. We had 2 great days with Bruce, who was a very safe pair of hands!
A Safe Pair of Hands!
‘The trip was great thanks, a real eye opener and definitely changed my mind set about being fixated on just one peak – Im really excited about the potential scope for what can be done and will definitely be looking to do another trip with you’
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the skills, knowledge and wisdom shared with myself and Rob on our course at the weekend. It gave us an insight into the challenges that lie ahead in the mountains and we learned huge amounts from yourself and Jake over the two days. I appreciated the fact that you were patient but never indulgent. But it was also great fun. I wish you the best of luck on your future climbs, and I’ll be sure to recommend you to anyone I know who is considering such a course. And please pass on our thanks to Jake too.
Just wanted to send a note to say thank you for the excellent winter skills. Janice and I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend. We were both very impressed by Hannah’s knowledge, friendliness, professionalism and passion for the mountains. We both felt very safe and would not hesitate booking another course in the future and recommending your company to our friends. Many thanks
Thank you for planning and organising our trip to the Alps. Both the course and the ascent of Mont Blanc were a great experience. Chris is a demanding guide but nevertheless we both feel that we learnt so much in his company. As an introduction to alpine mountaineering the whole experience has equipped us with the potential to venture safely into the Alps in future should we wish. This is all we hoped. Mont Blanc was the icing on the cake. Thanks
