Brilliant week out in some of the Lake District’s most scenic climbing spots. Andy is a great instructor with an impressive amount of knowledge and experience in rock climbing, who was able to get all of us to complete our first trad lead climbs. Can’t recommend it enough.” – Theo, Learn To Lead Trad Course attendee
