Left lower Ross and paddled to Innisfallen and back I figure about 6-7k. The weather was great and the lake was glass (unless a tour boat made waves). The guide was great and informative as a guide should be. Would highly recommend.

Had a brilliant time and learned a lot. Nathan is very knowledgeable and if you're curious about something he'll try fit it in to a very packed weekend.

Great course and introduction to Rock Climbing for beginners. Safety was paramount throughout the weekend and lots of climbing, abseiling and different techniques were used and discussed. Highly recommended.
