"Having recently taken up climbing again after a 12 year hiatus, when we'd discovered we'd won a day's outdoor education with Adventure Expertise (after entering a competition at Alpkit Hathersage's launch weekend) we were pretty happy. Tim was endlessly patient with two very rusty climbers and we had a fantastic day at Lawrencefield. We would highly recommend you to anyone wanting to learn to climb or improve existing skills. Thank you. Hoping we can arrange another day of climbing soon"

"Please pass my thanks once again to Andy for the two days. Very professional and was a pleasure to work with. I'm extremely pleased that I found you guys to do this with and have already recommended you to two of my colleagues who want to go down the same route. Once I get some experience under my belt with groups, I look forward to returning for ML in the not too distant future."

“If you were to ask if I would recommend you, I would say YES, especially given your instructors - both of the guys were special.  Aside from being well practised and drilled, both were sensitive to what we wanted to do and pushed us as to what we could achieve.  Such experience and good natured humour is rare in the light of my experience of courses before.  They are a unique and special breed that understand the difference between instructing and dictating, look to make things fun, understand how to make clients feel comfortable and are astute enough to tailor lessons to the clients requirements.  Thank you for the BEST weekend I have spent in a long time.  I feel that my skills have increased exponentially and I am certainly less intimidated about going up into the hills in winter - thank you for all that you have done.  Diolch yn Fawr.”

"Thank you for making the assessment fun, interesting and as relaxed as possible albeit in 'exam conditions', with very experienced and approachable instructors."
