I did the Improvised Rescue course with Climb GB as part of a group of 3 people, and we were all really impressed with the content and the delivery. We covered various possible rescue scenarios, with chances to ask questions and practice everything, as well as covering a more 'advanced' scenario we were particularly curious about. Tom was friendly and professional, clearly knows his stuff inside out, and reassured us with extra safety measures taking into account the current Covid situation. The whole day felt really well planned and executed, and I've come away feeling so much more confident about my ability to react should an accident happen while we're climbing. Thanks Tom! You were brilliant.

We had a great day out with Tom, doing the improvised rescue and problem solving course. Tom was really attentive to our needs and our safety throughout, adapting as required, both in terms of climbing and covid. We learnt a lot, and had sufficient time to practice every skill. I feel much more confident in my ability to problem solve and escape to safety if ever I need to. I now have many more tools in my toolkit, which I'll be able to adapt to various situations. I would definitely recommend this course to any climber or mountaineer. The day was really well organised, and Tom prepped us clearly beforehand too. Tom is a excellent instructor, and a great guy, thanks Tom!

Improvised rescue and problem solving course
We did an "Improvised Rescue and Problem Solving Course" with Climb GB. Organisation was on point before and during the course! All the important details of the course were clearly communicated to us prior to the day. Similarly, Tom was very good at communicating on the course, giving very clear instructions and being patient with us learners. He was also good at making it safe in terms of the covid19 situation by keeping distance and providing personal safety equipment where needed. The course was well structured, but Tom also accommodated it depending on our feedback and particular questions we had. Definitely recommend doing this course to give you the tools to act when climbing day out turns into an improvised rescue mission. Overall it was very good experience and I learned a lot from the course!

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.

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.

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!
