Ed was brilliant. Took the time to get to know each of us and pick routes that would suit or challenge our varying abilities. He also talked us through the technical side of what he was doing, building anchors, setting up top ropes etc. Thoroughly loved it. Can’t really find fault.

Stanage, Saturday 18 May- another well led, excellent outdoor climbing trip. Climbers benefit from expert instruction offered to suit individual abilities. The lead instructor and the deputy are exceptionally thoughtful- they generously share the relevant information, advice and guidance. The trip provides particularly good value for money- with the travel to and from the crag all included.

An excellent outdoor climbing experience. Expert instruction appropriately provided to meet individual climbing/learning needs. Exceptionally thoughtful instructor generously sharing his climbing know-how. Extremely good value for time and money. Look forward to further such trips. Happily recommending to friends and family.

Great instructor, great location, great weather and loved the routes. Improve: my friend and I would have liked to have done more, we tried 6 routes in all. However a mix of people in group made this unavoidable, it took time getting from place to place and accommodating everyone. Maybe we should have done a 1:2 session in hindsight. The course does clearly say any ability so instructor did a great job based on 4 different people so it’s not a course issue more expectation. I wondered if knowledge about experience /expectations could be shared in advance of the day, though don’t know if practically that would make a difference.
