Rock & Ice Customer Feedback Page


I was away on training last week so this is the first opportunity I've had to write and say a big thankyou from us all for your time and experience for our trip up to you a week last Friday.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be looking to do something on a more regular basis if my family commitments allow, and I have had positive feedback from the other 3 who also want to repeat the day in some shape or form.
We didn't stop chatting on the way home and now the photos' have come out as well so we are meeting up today for lunch to have a browse. It's a shame we didn't get Dan going right over backwards!
Thanks again, if we look to book something in the new year you will be first port of call and I won't hesitate to recommend you on our company adverts email board (which reaches about 1500 people).


Rachel & Dave

Both Dave and I had a fantastic couple of days climbing with you in the Peaks.
It was just what we needed!... both challenging and envigorating. The photos came out really well... Dave has managed to get them printed up as a great reminder of the thrills and (fortunately, not too many) spills of rock climbing.
Your encouragement really inspired us and you know we are keen to climb again.
Once again... thanks for all your encouragement and great introduction to this great sport.



Richard Thanks again for a great two days. My whole enjoyment was made all the greater by your relaxed but never less than professional approach and I was pleasantly surprised by how far we got in so short a time.




Thanks very much for putting the the photos in the Gallery so quickly.
It's great to have a reminder of the last couple of days and I'm really grateful for all your patience and encouragement which helped me to keep going even when I thought I would give up.
I will be in touch in the Spring.

Tracey & Kath

Thanks very much.
The introductory climbing day was superb. Kath & I achieved more than we dreamed possible thanks to your excellent style of instruction - supportive, patient and encouraging.
We are glad we chose Rock & Ice and would encourage others, men or women, to do the same.
Whilst not able to take up the sport properly, I would very much like to come back next year for a few days to develop some skills with a view to finding a club and doing some climbing on an occasional basis.
So thanks for the inspiration and I will keep an eye on the website.



Hi, Dave/Richard Thought I'd send you a quick email just to say that my Dad and I had an absolutly excellent weekend with you climbing. We both were in agreement that the tuition and guidance from Dave was second to none. It was a great to be in the outdoors with such good company, learning interesting techniques about climbing, something we were very new to. We both felt challenged, extremely invigorated and motivated having learnt so much. We have begun taking steps in learning more about climbing through clubs and socities, with me Dad still trying to perfect his 8 knot and myself trying not to swear at the rocks so much... ;) Both of us will be doing more climbing in the near future, as it did have such positive impact on us! We hope to keep in touch, maybe for another weekend course in the future.
Thanks for the great experience!!



Hi Richard

Just a quick note to thank you for organising my climbing in Scotland with Fraser, I had a truly excellent time and managed to cover all of the areas that I had hoped to. Aswell as being a very skilled mountaineer and guide, who was always willing to answer my questions and pass on the benefit of his experience, Fraser was also a "nice bloke" into the bargain which when there are just the two of you is almost as important in making the trip a success.

On day 1 I didn't think that I would be successfully tackling a grade IV climb by day 4 and that is largely due to Frasers encouragement (and prudent protection placement). Once again thanks, I can now face my fast approaching Aconcagua expedition with renewed confidence.

Please pass on my thanks to Fraser and be assured that should I require any training/guiding in the future I will be more than happy to use your company again and recommend you to friends and colleagues.

Best wishes for the New Year



“Thanks again for a very enjoyable day out”.


Robert and James


Just to say we had a fantastic couple of days with you last weekend, even though my arms still ache. James and I will be back this summer to take the next course. I'll even try abseiling again.





Just to say thank you for the great time I had on the rock climbing course. I did enjoy it all the more so because of your patience and expert tutition. I think Anton and myself both felt we learnt a great deal from you.

Many thanks




I would like to add how much I've appreciated being on the crags and the mountains with you.
Since then my climbing has been non stop and includes several snow and ice routes in Scotland thanks to that contact you gave me.

All the best



Photographs are excellent - thanks very much, and we really
enjoyed the course - we both learnt a lot and have a good
basis to build on now..
