WHAT customers SAY


We had a wonderful day out in the mountain with Sam. He's incredibly knowledgeable about everything outdoors and kindly tailored the experience to our specific requests. Would definitely recommend!


The advanced scrambling course was just what I was looking for and really well delivered. There was a lot to take in but Sam was clear calm and incredibly helpful and at all times focused on safety. I would recommend this to all looking to up their scrambling grade.


I spent a day refreshing my technical mountaineering skills with Sam. He was a fantastic guide for the day - he was patient with me and had so much knowledge, I really valued his expertise. Definitely recommend.
