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

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

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

When I contacted Unique Ascent I had a very limited mountaineering experience - it is still very much the case, but at least I know what I don't know and how to be paranoid all the time :) If you climb high mountains you have to be that way! I am very pleased with the service - highly recommended to... More

First things first, let me catch my breath....

A trip isnt just... More

We had a great day out with Iain in May 2013. We did many adventure activities in Ireland - caving, coasteering, biking - and this was our favourite of the bunch. It was incredible to be able to climb sea stacks and stand above the raging sea. The climbing is entirely based on the conditions and we certainly felt like... More
