"Wow, now I know how to use my boots properly on the hill, crampons, ice axe and a grounding in rope skills. The course also covered navigation, weather and avalanche risk assessment - extremely good value, I’ve come away with so much. As a trainer myself (I train Doctors), I can say the instruction was very professional, paced well and friendly, with plenty of smiles and good humour". I can’t recommend enough, you can really trust this organisation.
