  • Had a day outdoor rock climbing with Pete yesterday and it was fab! The views were amazing and it was such a great experience for us 4 beginners! Pete on the other hand was exceptional. He took his time and explained it all to us and was nothing but patient! I was absolutely petrified and he was so calming and reassuring throughout! The day would not have been the same without Pete🌟
  • This was a great experience after a day of hiking. My son Adrian and I did the climbing walls. Tom the instructor was great at helping us learn the techniques and safety procedures. Enjoyable time
  • Great experience climbing ice and roco. The kids had a really funny time at the kinder zone. Perfect in a bad weather conditions day outside.
