What Our Clients Say

We booked a morning session of climbing for my son’s 7th birthday. Dan took us to the Langdale Valley, which was an amazing introduction to outdoor climbing. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and the kids are very keen to do further climbing. Thank you for a great experience and a very memorable birthday

Katie, Intro to Rock Climbing

Thank you for providing such a lovely day. It was perfect and just what we had hoped for. We had a brilliant time and Mike and I enjoyed watching the children as well as reminding ourselves what it feels like to climb outside!

Marie B, Intro to Rock Climbing

A day with Danny, a day to remember. Danny is an inspiration, experienced, great teacher and sound all round guy. You will come away having learnt more had fun and been challenged. Cheers Danny👍

Pete, Intro to Mountaineering

"The level of instruction was phenomenal and both of us learned so much. The package was tailored to our individual needs and Danny ensured both of us got what we wanted out of the two days. It was both a very interesting and enjoyable couple of days and we can’t thank him enough" - Harry

Harry C, Learn to Lead Course

Danny has a wealth of knowledge in the outdoors some of which only comes with spending a lot of your time in the mountains. The weekend we spent with Danny on that introduction to climbing has opened so many opportunities in terms of our confidence in climbing, we are all now doing routes we would never have had the confidence to climb prior to this. I can wholeheartedly recommend Danny as an instructor in all areas.

Mark S, Intro to Climbing & Mountaineering

We have engaged Danny for 4 consecutive events over the last 2 years helping to develop our apprentices. Danny is able to provide a wide range of services through various indoor and outdoor based activities. He is clear in what is expected and is able to offer ideas and suggestions to help develop and shape programmes to meet the business needs. He has a calm, collected approach and is able to encourage and obtain feedback and analysis from participants that can be of further use either at the time or for a point in future. It’s great that he has been able to support our last 4 events offering continuity and familiarity to existing apprentices over the last 2 years. We will definitely look to continue to engage Danny going forwards.
