Thank-YOU! It was another brilliant day. Really loved it.  I keep telling everyone I know about your company.

-Rae Abbott, Grib Goch 22/05/16

Thanks for a great day on Snowdon. I really valued your expert guiding and patience, and your awareness of when people needed a bit of support. It was a great route up the mountain with a bit of everything in the terrain, and so quiet.
(Your knowledge of geology and biology was also most impressive 😏)
I'm looking forward to another trip.

-Sally Jerome, Snowdon 21/05/16

Really enjoyed our walk/climb up Snowdon, you chose a perfect route, despite the little bit of rain and mist we all enjoyed it so much. You defiantly helped it be totally stress free with your knowledge, relaxed nature and understanding the group and individual needs throughout the day. We will be be singing your praises and defiantly ask you to help us climb another mountain. Thanks again.

-Joanne Wilson, Snowdon 21/05/16

Hi Rob, Thank you so much for looking after us - your chat, humour, kindness and the pace you set was just right for us ladies ! 
The walking stick you lent me really helped - I certainly will recommend you to others.

-Wendy Nixon, Snowdon 21/05/16

Scott and I had a wonderful weekend experiencing the delights of Tryfan with the wonderful and highly experienced Rob. Despite a shaky start to the weather, it was a thrilling and exciting scramble, which really challenged us and inspired us to do more in the future. We are already in the process of arranging further courses with Rob. Many thanks again, and highly recommended :)

-Simon Moss, Navigation Day 22/03/16

'Rob I'd really like to thank you for a great day. The content of the course was really first class. I have to say you really opened my eyes to the amount of relevant detail on the OS maps, that you can actually use for navigation purposes. I thought the structure of the course was great, it flowed really well. The formulas were relevant, the exercises with the rucksacks to take bearings was enjoyable, and allowed us all to get used to taking bearings, pacing, and understanding distances. The night walking and night navigation really allowed me to have a totally different perspective on hill walking. It was so peaceful and relaxing, a very strange experience.
I thoroughly enjoyed the day. I never expected to be out on the hills from 10.30 until after 7pm, and then fireworks at the end. Despite the weather this was one of the most memorable days I've spent out on the hills. I really thought when the rain started that this would have been a disaster, but your enthusiasm, and wealth of knowledge made this a total success. I didn't realise how much I didn't know. I've been able to go back home, and reinforce a lot of the skills and techniques with the Collins Ultimate Navigation Manual.
Thank you for your time, and I look forward to taking part in other courses that you plan to run in the future.
Many thanks...John'

'Hi Rob, Just a line to let you know we had a good day on Saturday. We learnt lots of important navigation skills & intend to practice these on Pendle Hill next weekend. Coming down in the dark was a great learning experience, despite my attempt to descend faster than planned lol. As for the weather, it comes with the environment but does not eclipse the beauty of this amazing area. Thanks again for putting navigation in context & I'm sure these skills will serve us well.

Regards Dave'

Fantastic day, and brilliant support from Rob. I'd never scrambled before, and was at the back for most of the day, but I was never made to feel inadequate. I received lots of encouragement which boosted my confidence no end. If you're considering this, just do it, it's well worth it!
