Hi Andy. Thank you. We had a really enjoyable day. I like your style of coaching. I was scared at times but I had absolute faith in the way you had set up the ropes, so was able to overcome those fears. I now feel confident to tackle the In Pinn next month. I’ll let you know how we get on. Tommy absolutely loved it so I think we’ll be getting him a pair of shoes and a mat.
Many thanks to you Andy, and the two Josh's, all great teachers 😊 We had a fantastic day. So different to climbing indoors and I want to do it again. Cheers! 2/06/2019
Thanks for a terrific day. I would never have thought I’d be able to climb up those faces.
I’m sure that your teaching style really inspired confidence in me Andy. 13/05/2019
