Outdoor climbing taster session (6 hour)
A couple of very informative, well paced sessions on the Northumberland Crags were a great introduction to climbing for myself and my son. Tom was extremely knowledgeable and patient; he also adapted his approach to take into account some very wild and windy weather. Would definitely recommend the introduction to climbing session.

3 hour taster session
We had such a perfect morning climbing the East Woodburn Crag with Tom. He had already set up all the ropes so we had a full three hours of climbing in a beautiful location in the sunshine. My two children (11 and 9) are quite new to outdoor climbing but Tom was very good at explaining how to navigate whilst bouldering and ensuring we did our buddy checks to stay safe on the ropes. He chose some great routes of varying difficulty and we particularly enjoyed climbing blindfolded. Would definitely recommend this session to anyone - new or experienced climbers.

Learn to lead outdoors (1 Day )
Tom is a polite young man with a lot of knowledge and experience.
The course criteria is set out well covering equipment, gear placement, route planning and various other essential information in the morning with climbing, anchor and belay stations covered in the afternoon.
At no time throughout the day does it feel rushed or pressured with a nice and relaxing day climbing with Tom making you feel safe while boosting your confidence and knowledge.
Highly recommended.

Outdoor climbing taster
Tom is an excellent coach; he will bring out the best of you, whilst making you laugh along the way. I've already been able to apply things he has taught to the bouldering wall, making things easier.
You will leave learning something new and will no doubt be happy to go back to do another course!

Genuinely looking forward to crossing paths again somewhere down the line! Thanks Tom!

Climbing outdoors
Thank you once again for a great experience today! I really enjoyed the new adventure - all good fun and a great chance to add something new to the mix. You’re so good with people, knowing how to distinguish between pushing someone to their limit and creating a sense of real achievement - wonderful. Hope to see you again at some other exciting escapade.

Thank you for the course, we all can't stop talking about it! We all learned so much, so quickly and can't wait to use our new skills. You answered all of our questions before the course, politely explaining everything we needed to know. The course was exactly as described and improved our navigation so much over the 2 days. Highly recommended and we will be back for more courses in the future!

Learn to lead outdoors (1 day) course
A fantastic day out at East Woodburn Crag. The course was very comprehensive in what was covered and we both feel like it has given us the skills and confidence to go trad climbing ourselves
Tom is an excellent instructor. Always happy to answer any questions we had, he also provided additional tips and background knowledge on the course content. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn.

6 hr taster session
We went to East Woodburn Crag and were treated with sunshine and privacy. Tom is a great, easygoing instructor who can adjust the course to all levels and ages and we had a wonderful climbing session with him. He taught us about the rock and the differences between sports climbing and traditional climbing. We learned, laughed and most of all climbed to our hearts content. Highly recommended to anybody.

6 hour taster session
Awesome day out. My first time ever climbing no and. Couldn't have wished for a better instructor; Tom was extremely good at explaining each step and the importance of all the safety equipment. Then, going on to start the climbing the whole day went at my pace and Tom was extremely good at ensuring that each climb was achievable but challenging my skill level.

By the end of the day I had bruises you wouldn't believe, I was pretty sure my finger tips were missing a few layers of skin and i ached from head to toe. I'D HAD THE MOST AWESOME DAY!!!

Highly recommended. Thanks Tom
