Fantastic day climbing

Excellent day climbing with a knowledgeable and experienced instructor. Came away feeling we had both learnt a lot

We had a fantastic day rock climbing at Windgather Rocks with Hanness from Wilderness Development. We were complete novices having done no climbing before the day, but the instruction we received was effective and we were soon able to find our way up the rockface. Prior to the day, Will experienced very comprehensive pre-course information which answered many questions. On the day, all equipment was provided clean and in good condition and our instructor toed the line perfectly between guiding us throughout the day but also letting us pick our own routes to climb. Highly recommended experience.

A Great Day!

This was a great way to spend a day outdoors. Excellent and enthusiastic instruction, a small convivial group of people and an achievable but satisfying challenge in lovely surroundings. Good value for money too - could not be bettered!

A thoroughly enjoyable day

Thorough and patient tuition along with small group size enabled a good introduction. Flexibility on the day ensured a good range of different climbs with plenty of opportunties to push individuals in a safe environment. Highly recommended.

Rock climbing experience

This was a most enjoyable day. The leader Will Sheaff made an excellent instructor, and was very friendly, supportive and encouraging. As an introduction to rock climbing I do not think the day could have been better, despite poor weather.
