Sam was the ultimate professional. A wealth of background experience and technical knowledge, whilst also being polite, interesting and informative.
The climb itself was just about challenging enough that I felt safe at all times and was still able to keep conversation.


He guided us safely up Grey Crag to the top of High Stile, via Harrow Buttress, Chockstone Ridge, Oxford & Cambridge Direct Route.
Sam was interesting and engaging throughout the day and we came away having learnt lots too! 100% recommend.


I had a truly wonderful time. Sam was highly professional, nice company and at no point did I feel rushed or that I was going slowly. I felt well taken care of and as a consequence by the second day I really felt my confidence soaring. Addictive. I want to go again today.


We look forward to hearing from you and working towards your mountaineering ambitions and helping to achieve your goals.
