Fantastic two days on a mountain skills course with Stephen. He tailored the learning to suit all the individuals needs within the group. This was done in a knowledgeable and friendly way with the right level of challenge.
Attended a mountain skills course this week with Stephen. Great stuff. Learned plenty of good practical techniques on navigation , route planning , and staying safe in the mountains. All put over in a calm , non judgemental way. A very knowledgeable guy and good company. Would recommend this course to anybody looking to refine their skills and gain confidence in the mountains!
Fantastic guy, fantastic course, I would recommend to anybody. Had a super time out in the mountains with great people. Thank you Steve.
