I was lucky enough to get to go out climbing with Iain and Louise from Unique Ascent a couple of days ago, I'd heard lots of praise for him from various rock climbing instructors so I was really looking forward to meeting him in person! I had rarely ever climbed outdoors so it was a great experience that I'll never... More

Me an my son had the pleasure of spending some time with Iain over Easter. We thoroughly enjoyed the various climbs suggested and as we were both beginners he talked us through the various stages and made us feel at ease. At no stage did we feel we were left adrift or unsure about what to do next. Iain, with... More

It's a reflection of Iain's skills as a trainer and his infectous enthusiasm for all things outdoor,... More

As I pedalled along Donegal's Wild Atlantic Way over the hills from Glencolmcille to an Port on the Sunday morning before Easter, the sea stacks in the bay below seemed small. But they were faraway like my mind which replayed Iain's words to me the previous night, "Are you coming out to play tomorrow?" The glint in his eye and... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my first rock-climbing session on Thursday morning on Cruit Island. Must admit that I'd had mixed feelings about giving it a go but decided to go along anyway. I knew that everything was going to be 100% safe under the watchful eye of Iain Miller and Aidan McGinley. Will definitely return to give it another go. Great... More

Iain is a very effective instructor, techniques and aims of the course were clearly described before setting out on the hills. His method of practical application of the techniques allowed for quick progress and has shown me how to it is possible to confidently navigate despite weather... More

I had a specific idea and goal. I wanted to go from summer to winter climbing. This to most climbers this can be almost like learning to climb for the first time all over again. So what was one to do? Well the answer came with the professional knowledge and great humour of Iain Miller from Unique Ascent a fully... More
