I've always had a fascination with caving but never actually been on any organised caving trips.

I'd been to the White Scar Caves in Yorkshire, the Honistor slate mine and Chislehurst caves but nothing ever proper meaty.

I'd arranged a nice break in the Peak District and decided that I would contact some proper Caving companies and see what they could offer.

Following a recommendation from another caving company (always a great sign), Steve @ Dolomite responded to my email and asked me to give him a call.

We chatted about my level of experience (zero) and attitude for adventure (high). I explained the kind of experience that my partner and I were looking for and from this he put together a loose itinerary of what we could see.

The day arrived and we were met by Wendy, an incredibly friendly, positive and cheerful instructor who worked with Steve.

She ran through where we would be starting and upon arriving there (Bagshaw Cave) went through what we needed to wear (all of which Dolomite provided).

Wendy was truly amazing. My GF was a little uncertain about the caving but knew that she wanted to push herself to do it. Wendy was patient and encouraging and supportive. She was happy to stop and reassure my partner whenever she felt uncertain and offered so many snippets of information on the mines/caves that we were in.

She identified that I was a bit more confident in that environment and pushed me to try a bit of narrow scrambling which I thoroughly enjoyed.

The caving, experience and sights that I saw were fantastic but Wendy truly made the day. She was a pleasure to cave with who made us feel safe and in the hands of a professional at all times.

I'm not sure if my GF will do any more caving but if I get the chance to, Dolomite will certainly be at the top of my list.

Thank you Steve and Wendy.

Steve was our guide and we had a great day. We had come up from flat Suffolk and this was our first proper mountain bike trip. We told him what we were looking to do and he planned a route accordingly. He took us up and down routes which we would never have tried. He coached and guided us and helped build our confidence. By the end of the day we had moved on so much in experience, knowledge and confidence

Could not recommend him highly enough.

Epic caving day with Wendy on 8th July - what can I say, the whole experience was just incredible. Wendy was fab, such a fun person and as well as guiding us safely through the caves she was able to give us so much new and interesting information about the formation and structures we were seeing (every day is a school day!). I don’t know what I was expecting from caving but what we did was so much more than I ever could have thought. The caves are literally awesome, so vast and other-worldly, and Wendy cleverly was able to suss us out and gauge our level of experience and she chose the perfect cave to give us the best time as well as challenge us. I would highly recommend caving, and Dolomite Training, for anyone who wants to experience something unique, and push themselves just a little bit mentally and physically. Thank you Wendy - you really made a good experience great!

Hey Steve, this is David, me you and my father went out to do the giants hole round trip and I CANNOT recommend dolomite training more. The whole trip was brilliantly prepared, we felt incredibly safe and comfortable with you, all the equipment was perfect. I felt like you read us perfectly and chose the best route really well, you were really knowledgeable and encouraging. Very professional and prepared. I had an absolutely brilliant time and as someone looking to get into caving this experience was perfect and I'm already excited thinking about a second trip out! my dad had some troubles with the false vice but you kept him calm and perfectly instructed to him how to get out. He was incredibly impressed as well. If you're a first time caver or looking for a good, exciting adventure then dolomite training is absolutely the place for you!

My son had a wonderful afternoon climbing at Stanage Edge with Steve. My son is a keen young climber, but had never climbed outdoors before. Despite the less than ideal weather (!) he had a fantastic time. Steve chose routes that provided him with a gradual increase in difficulty and gave him plenty of encouragement and advice to overcome the harder climbs, including new techniques like arm and fist jams! We hope to return to the Peak District next year and will definitely be booking in with Steve again if we do.

It was a pleasure working with someone who had such a passion for climbing despite the far from perfect weather. What will he be like on a good day?? Lets get the weather booked for your return to the Peaks.

We decided to take the plunge and book a day of guided outdoor activities instead of doing Go Ape - and so glad we did! We are a family of five, three kids aged 9, 9 and 7 and we had a great day out with Wendy rock climbing, abseiling and weaselling. We were all novices and Wendy made it fun, we felt very safe, and the children kept going the whole day. We were exhausted by the end! Spectacular views, lots of fresh air and exercise and a wonderful sense of achievement. Would recommend.

We had a fantastic day climbing and abseiling for a stag party in Hope Valley, near Hathersage.

Steve and Simon were brilliant instructors who kept the day fun and exciting throughout. We climbed in the morning for a few hours and then stopped to grab some lunch on the way to Tideswell, where we abseiled off a viaduct which was a great finish to the day!

I would thoroughly recommend Dolomite training to anyone looking for group activities in the Peak District!

My family had a great day out with Dolomite Training. The morning activity Rock Climbing was organised well, we all felt super safe, and was popp(although challenging) really good fun.

The afternoon activity of Weaselling was so much fun, climbing and jumping off rocks, squeezing through them and crawling through nooks in the mountain. We all became very competitive with one another!

The instructor Wendy was super friendly and knowledgeable. She was excellent with our dog, helping her over boulders.

From a selection of activity companies in the Peak District Dolomite Training was very affordable.

I would definitely recommend booking an activity with them.

When we return we plan to book river rafting and mountain biking.

I'm so glad that you had a great day out with Wendy despite some damp weather for you. Weaselling certainly brings out the competitive nature in quite a lot of people! look forward to your return All the best Steve

What a great day for my two teenagers. Dropped them off at 9.30 and picked them up just after 4 - they had climbed indoors but not much experience outdoors. Thanks so much to Wendy who pushed them out of their comfort zone and took them beyond what they thought they could achieve. They have come back buzzing and very proud of what they managed to do. We can only totally recommend Dolomite Training as it was even better than I had hoped for when booking.

We can’t recommend Dolomite Training highly enough. We booked a day activity of abseiling and caving with our 9 and 11 year olds. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the day and Steve was excellent throughout. We will definitely be back!
