What other clients have said about Rock Climbing Classes.

  • Hi Sarah, Thank you so much for Megan's party yesterday, all of the children had a really fantastic time and gained so much in confidence. I have a feeling you may be seeing a little more of us in the future!

    Thanks again


  • A belated note to say thanks. Nigel and I very much enjoyed our afternoon with Mick a few weeks back. What a kind and patient man he is!

    We think we have improved and felt more confident on our next visit to the wall. Off to the Peak District on Friday for a couple of days to try out some different kind of rock.  Kate


  • Thanks so much for such a great taster session on Saturday, Phillipa and I loved it and will definitely be signing up for more!   Natalie
  • We really enjoyed the weekend. Yourself and Chris were very patient and encouraging, we're so glad we came along. We also really appreciate all your hard work throughout the weekend to make it so enjoyble! You must be tired after all the driving, cooking, washing up etc! We definitely want to continue learning and would really like to attend the one day course in October, so will complete the booking forms and send these back to you. Anna
  • I just wanted to say thanks again for a really brilliant weekend.  I had so much fun and it was a great way to get to try some outdoor climbing and meet some lovely people.  I love the photo!  It actually looks like I know what I'm doing rather than just flinging myself against the rock and hoping I stick ;-)  I've got the bug now so hopefully next year I'll sign up to learn how to do some more! Cath

It was so lovely to see their confidence growing. My son told me when he got home that it was 'the best day of my life so far'. You can't get higher praise than that! Eleanor

  • Hi Sarah, just dropping you a note to thankyou for the wonderful day we had today. It is Conor's 15th birthday and he could not have enjoyed more( I think he may well be spending his birthday money on your online shop!) to see his smile and confidence grow bigger as the day went on is a memory which shall stay with me forever!

    Could I further thankyou for making the whole experience a complete pleasure from beginning to end, I can not sing your praises highly enough and shall be recommending your company to anyone looking to do any rock climbing or similar activity!  Hopefully i shall be back In touch soon to book further courses.  Once again thankyou, yours sincerely Chris, Nikki and Conor (still sporting grins from ear to ear! :-) Chris

  • I would like to say a big thank you for a fantastic morning on the taster session My son and his friend were full of broad smiles when we got back to the car and were asking when can we go again. Their instructor's (Chris) enthusiasum for the sport, I found quite infectious and some of his climbing stories filled me with awe.I'm sure I'll be contacting you again to arrange another course. Ian

  • I just wanted to thank you for the great service you provided from the start of my initial contact right through to our climbing day.

    Both you and Mick were very accommodating and as first time climbers, we found the tuition suited our pace. You provided a professional and patient service which I will surely recommend and Mick's climbing experience and local knowledge shone through making our experience memorable and enjoyable. Cheneen

  • Thank you very much for the excellent experience yesterday.  The chap who led yesterday's taster course was very amiable and professional, and bought us all together as a group.  He helped us loads, especially my wife on the difficult assent with ropes. Stephen

  • Just want to drop you a quick email to say thank you to Nuts4climbing for a great day yesterday. Both Alexa and I thought it was a really well balanced day and an excellent introduction to climbing. I am sure we will both be back to do some more climbing with you guys, and maybe we might invest in some rock shoes for next time. David
  • I would just like to thank you and Mick for our half day experience on Saturday, we all had a fantastic time and Mick was perfect in his approach to getting us to find our paths up the rock, we will be in contact soon to arrange another day out. Richard

  • Hi there Sarah – it was brilliant!  Mick kept the kids on the move all the time and handled the odd ‘boisterousness’ between the boys brilliantly (I don’t know how he keeps his patience all the time – he could give me lessons!).  The kids all thoroughly enjoyed it and the few parents I’ve seen in the holidays have all said their child loved telling them all about it when they got home (a good sign they’ve enjoyed it in my experience).  Finn had a wonderful day and my elder daughter enjoyed it so much she’s thinking about having a party for her 11th birthday in October. Many thanks for a lovely day. Helen

  • Sarah, thanks so much for the last couple of days.  We really really enjoyed it - the boys are raving about it and want climbing birthdays.  We'll definitely see you again therefore for birthdays and grown up trips!  thanks also for the pics - very much appreciated. Phil

  • We had such a great day.  An amazing birthday present.  How could I have got to 33 and never been climbing before?  Ben

  • A really big thanks for today, we all really enjoyed it and will certainly recommend you to all our friends! Please keep us on your mailing list for any holiday clubs etc. 

    David, Melissa, Thomas & Sophie

  • Big thanks for last Sunday, the pics, and for picking us up from the train station.  I think Ben's already been in touch to say we had a super day, but I wanted to say so myself. It's not looking like we'll be able to join you in the Peak District which is a blow. Hope to see you soon though! Kara

  • Thank you for the good training this year, I enjoyed it, you opened a whole new world to me. Joanna

  • We had a brilliant time this morning with Alan (he was excellent), and we're really looking forward to going back next week. Ruth

  • Been meaning to drop you a line to say a big thanks for a fantastic course you ran for 6 weeks on Thurs evenings, it was a great intro to climbing and was the highlight to my working week. Robert

  • Just to say a very "Big Thank You" for Hannah's party today - it was so much more than I was expecting - the girls haven't stopped going on about it. Thank you so much and we hope to back in the future as there are definately some budding climbers amongst them. Hilary

  • Hi Sarah, Just a quick email to say thankyou for all your (and Mick's) efforts over the past 6 weeks!!! I really enjoyed myself, learnt so much (not just about climbing either) and thought it was a great, great course.

    Thankyou very much again, I really loved it. Kate R

  • Niamh and I really enjoyed the morning with you.  She loved the climbing and I enjoyed my one climb more than I expected (though it made me feel rather feeble).  You instructed us really well and it mde Niamh feel really pleased that she felt she was climbing quite independently.

    We will definitely be in touch to come down with some friends in the summer.Muriel

  • Just a quick note to thank you for an excellent morning at Harrison Rocks.  Both Rory and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we will be back shortly.


  • We had an absolutely brilliant time on Tuesday. Mick was a complete star and all the children really enjoyed themselves. He was brilliant at making all the children feel confident in their ability to have a go - even those who were a bit scared to start off with. My sister-in-law is thinking about organising a party for her son and bringing a minibus from Brighton as they all had such a lovely time. Thank you so much for arranging everything. It was the best party ever and totally stress free from my point of view! Jacqui

  • We want to thank you for the climbing day at Harrisons' Rock last week. It is amazing how much you taught us in just one day. You were right: it made the climbing with Terry much easier! We climbed at Harboro Rocks, a lot of wind, but dry and it felt marvelous. We used the bowline you taught us and we definitely benifited from the footwork you had us practice. Thanks again, and we hope to have the chance to climb again with you. Karin & Tamar

    I look forward to getting out between now and September's course to better my footwork. Thanks for a great day and thanks for sorting me out with the additional kit as it is always far better to get the recommended kit rather than trying to figure that all out when your a beginner! Darryl

Tim

  • I probably said on Saturday but I really enjoyed myself, a lot more than I thought I would so thank you. I actually enjoyed myself so much that I was wondering if it was possible to sign up for the six week course, ideally on a Saturday if possible. However if there aren't any spots available then I might be interested in booking a two day course instead. Debbie
