Truly the holiday of a lifetime!
The locations and adventures that were handpicked by Dees and Trev are just perfect! Also they are the safest and most conscientious climbing guides I have ever climbed with. They constantly ensure safety is paramount and this only adds to the enjoyment and efficiency of all climbing. I can’t recommend this holiday enough!
The climbing took my breath away daily, and was so different to European climbing (which I love too!) but offered so much more variety and really pushed me to my best ability by far! Dees and Trev are such knowledgeable instructors, and also as a bonus are fantastic company! Can’t wait to experience this trip again, December can’t come quickly enough!
