What Our Guests Say
Thank you for organising the Snowdonia Matterhorn training weekend. I had a fantastic time with my climbing partner, Debbie and our guide Ric Potter. Even the weather was great. Our guide, Ric had a great way of explaining everything, clear and easy to understand. He inspired confidence in our equipment, our ability and our trust in him. He really showed us everything we needed to know, watched and corrected where necessary and praised where it was due.
I would certainly recommend Ric to anyone thinking of going on this course. Once again, thanks to yourself and Ric for a fantastic weekend and looking forward to the Scotland Matterhorn training weekend.
Snowdonia Matterhorn Training WeekendHoward Mayo, Matterhorn Training Course, October 2018
I had an excellent weekend. Rock climbing in big boots was new for me. It was good to learn some new techniques such as moving together. The weekend was great for my motivation. Before I started my drive home on Monday morning I even made a quick ascent of Snowdon!
I was very impressed with Callum. He is clearly an excellent rock climber. He was very enthusiastic and wanted to share his knowledge, experience and advice throughout the course. I look forward to visiting the Alps next Summer to climb the Matterhorn….Regards George
