Adventure Expertise Coronavirus (COVID-19) Position Statement: Updated 24th March 2020
We understand these are difficult times for everyone, and we will endeavour to continue supporting all of our clients and staff. We want to reassure everyone that we are doing everything that we can to both safeguard wellbeing and mitigate risk. As always, the health and wellbeing of our clients remains our primary concern. On the 17th of March we took the decision to postpone all of our upcoming courses, with immediate effect, until the 17th of May. However, in light of the latest guidance we have revised the date, and extended the course postponement period until the 1st of July 2020. We will keep this end date under careful review and extend it if necessary. In the coming weeks, we will be rescheduling any bookings that currently fall within this period. We will continue to monitor developments on a daily basis as new information is provided by the Government, FCO and NHS. As guidance is updated, we will amend our procedures as required.
We will keep you updated, and hopefully, we will be back enjoying the outdoors with you soon.
No two days are the same for us and that's because we feel lucky to work with a diverse range of clients, all with different aspirations and goals in the outdoors.
While each day might be different, you can be sure that all of our courses are tailored to meeting your personal goals and aspirations - all done with the highest safety standards while sharing laughs along the way. We're a friendly team and enjoy getting to know you.
Our skills courses, instruction and guiding cover a full range of hill walking, navigation, scrambling, climbing, winter walking, winter mountaineering and winter climbing activities.
For instructors we offer training, assessment and CPD courses along with support through the qualification journey via a range of mentoring, support and skills refresher opportunities.
All courses are run on low ratios to give you the time to develop your skills swiftly and safely.
This is at the heart of what we do and we work hard to ensure that you receive the highest standards alongside sharing the hills with good company.
Our experience and credentials mean that we are able to work in wonderful locations and tailor activities to suit you personally - you may aspire to climb a particular rock or ice route, learn the skills to navigate your own walks, become a qualified instructor or wish to experience how classic Winter climbs feel with a guide leading the way. We take care of the vital aspects of safety to allow you to concentrate on what you wish to achieve.
We guarantee you a warm welcome and a course that will go beyond what you want it to. We'd love to hear from you to chat through your aims, needs and goals - give us a call for an informal chat or pop in to our HQ in Hathersage in the Peak District (the kettle is always on).
We are a team that believe in the power of the outdoors to deliver fantastic adventures, challenges and experiences. We have all experienced the magical moments found in challenge, fresh air and friendship and want to share these with you both on our courses and so that you can take them into your own future adventures with others.
We don't take our roles lightly: having worked at the highest levels for many years our core team all hold the highest UK mountaineering qualifications and we always go out of our way to deliver the best courses possible, with your safety and enjoyment at the forefront of our minds.
