My 17 year old son had a really enjoyable time with instructor, Chris who was friendly, informative, fun and an excellent teacher. Vertical Adventures was fine experience from the initial booking to the last step of the climb.

My first outdoor climb as only gym indoor taught climber. Dave was the best lead climber and guide. he taught me more about foot work, and weight shifts in the half day trip than I had learnt over the whole year previously. lots of variety in the climbs well worth the cost. action packed day and adrenalin rush.thanks heaps.

The instructor, Erik Kramer-Webb, was excellent. He explained each point, eg how to tie the knot, the exact safety points, very carefully and then had each one do the... More
