"The content of the five days was well balanced with regards to the mix between theoretical aspects, practising skills and putting it all into action. Despite my relatively limited previous
experience, you managed to deliver the right amount of encouragement, allowing me to exceed my own expectations whilst always feeling safe. Ledge route was definitely the highlight of the week. The
course has really improved my confidence and definitely emphasized my enthusiasm for the mountains."
Dave Sampson, Winter Mountaineering.
"We spent 2 days winter climbing with Scott, under his instruction he helped us develop existing skills and learn much more. His professionalism, skill and attitude
gave us confidence, inspiration and a standard to aim for, while at every moment being humble and eager to share and give us as much of his knowledge as possible. We cannot thank him enough and
highly recommend him"
