What our clients say about Arrampica
“The guys who took part on the course said it was awesome, that they learned a lot and was really engaging all the time. If anything, the day passed too quickly. Thoroughly enjoyed it without information overload. Please pass on our thanks to all the Arrampica tutors involved.”
The course was excellent and it has opened my eyes to some interesting concepts – I will be doing some serious experimentation in the next few months. With regards to improvements, I cannot think of anything else that could possibly be included and even my dreams last night were awash with dreams of ropes and anchors!
"I would just like to start by saying thank you for all the training and assessments you have done with me over the past few months. I am extremely grateful for all your time and effort you have put into helping me, and developing my instructing skills.
Since completing my CWA abseil module, I feel that your advice, skills and confidence in my abilities has led me to become a better instructor."
"I wanted to say thank you for the CWA course that you ran over the weekend. I felt a great sense of achievement from the weekend and your teaching has given me the motivation to make rock-climbing qualifications part of my personal development over the next few years. I even have started thinking about putting my name down to shadow sessions at the XC and other walls."
"Having worked on a mobile climbing wall this summer, the course allowed me to gain further knowledge of equipment, technique and solutions. Beyond my personal challenge and interest as a sports development graduate I hope to inspire others to participate in a sport outside the normal offer.”
"Was a cracking weekend and I learnt a lot of new skills that I will hopefully use in the future! I can’t really think of any way in which improvements can be made, the weekend’s training was conducted very well and I think we have got the best out of the 2 days. My thanks to Paolo."
“I don’t think that I, or any of the students could have asked for anything more from the weekend. From my perspective the weekend was a test of the theory that I have long expounded that indoor walls are the ideal place to introduce outdoor rope handling techniques and safety disciplines. To see the students, under your careful guidance, move seamlessly from climbing wall to rock face, from wall climber to rock climber was a reward in itself!”
You may have heard over the last few months that changes are to be made to the existing Mountain Training qualifications. Here we give you a run-through of the new changes, naming and hopefully some clarity!
We know of many climbing walls – very good ones at that – in educational establishments across the country that are rarely used. What could be stopping the schools from using them? And if you haven’t considered investing in a climbing wall at your school, why not?
The answer is the Millennium Resort Mussanah Hotel in Oman, the first one in the country and in 2017, Tom and Paolo hopped on a plane to meet Christoph Schlessing and his team with their brand new zip wire at the stunning resort.
