This was our first outdoor climbing experience and we loved it. We can highly recommend James who planned a full day of climbing around our wishes. Thank you James for this unforgettable day.

1-day Rock climbing for beginners in Snowdonia, near Llanberis, Capel Curig or Tremadog

I had an amazing 2 days spent with James climbing. I was new to climbing and have now fallen in love with the sport thanks to James’ incredible teaching and adventures. James spent time getting to know me which allowed him to cater the course to what I wanted to achieve. The days flew by way too quickly as I was having too much fun. I will definitely be booking in some dates soon for some more adventuring and climbing. Thank you James :-) and I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know.
