Great day out

Although cancelled on my first date choice, this turned out to be a great day despite being on a damp October Sunday. The instructor was excellent with good personable and technical skills. Everyone attending was very friendly and helped each other with motivation and support. I would have liked smaller groups so we could climb a little more but by the end of the day we were physically tired. You need a good level of overall fitness to go for the whole day. Also, there weren't enough larger sized climbing shoes so had to share. Strangely they had plenty of size 8s and under but not many above. Ended up sharing but this didn't spoil the day. Other equipment was perfectly good. Can't imagine doing this experience in the pouring rain so grateful the weather kept dry after an overnight soaking.

This was a great introduction to rock climbing. Tom was first class; he empowered us with his expertise & knowledge. It was clear Tom has a real passion and love of the sport. I came away with the knowledge and confidence that I can progress to the next level. I will definitely be signing up to another of Tom's courses in the near future. Thanks for a great day.
