WHAT customers SAY


A friend and I joined three other hikers for a two day winter mountaineering course with Sam. We learned how to use crampons, ice axes, map reading/navigation and some general survival skills.


Sam struck us as a very personable guy, clearly our safety was paramount throughout, he’s keen to impart knowledge and continually encouraging. Arrangements were very straightforward, he was quick to respond to our communications, with clear, concise and precise instructions. We had really great fun and we thoroughly recommend climbing with Sam.


Wow! We spent a great 3 days with Sam learning to climb outdoors. He was knowledgeable and patient and made sure safety was a priority.


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