“Stanage Edge Rock Climbing Experience”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The kids had been interested in rock climbing since going to PGL a while back. I was not so sure as I'm not too good with heights...

We met with Richard nice and early and after familiarising ourselves with our equipment we headed on up to the rocks at Stanage. Richard explained everything very well and put me totally at ease with the whole thing. He went up and secured then necessary equipment ready for the climbing to begin.

There were two groups of us. We know each other and booked together. Ages ranged from 8 years to, oh, something over 40. We all made three ascents of the rock face, at three different locations-each more challenging than the last. We all thouroughly enjoyed the climbing, despite the midges trying their best to eat us alive (according to both Richard and the other climbers using Stanage that day, the midges were a very rare occurence).

All in all a very enjoyable experience. Richard is a thouroughly nice chap. The whole experience was very well organised and conducted by him, and despite my initial concerns about being in a situation that I wasn't too comfortable with his cool, confident attitude helped me get over this. I would definitely book again.

“Rock Climbing at Brimham Rocks”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Had a brilliant day rock climbing with Richard at Brimham Rocks - what a lovely guy - can't imagine their would be anyone he wouldn't get along with. We organised a trip with friends and family for a birthday surprise our group ranged from 8 to well not quite 80 but cracking on for rock climbing. Most of us had never climbed before and Richard kept us as safe as houses. If you've never been and are thinking of wether to give it a try we really couldn't recommend him highly enough - go for it. Thanks again for a day we will never forget.

“Fantastic climbing !”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

A few friends and I went climbing with Lost Earth Adventures and absolutely loved it ! None of us had climbed outdoors so didn't really know what to expect but Richard was very knowledgable and challenged us on various climbs !

I would definately recommend doing the climbing, it's really enjoyable and it's done on a personal level and you are pressurised into doing anything but is also very encouraging. I am definately going to book again :-)

“Climbing at stanedge”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Booked a climbing lesson for our son via groupon. Richard is friendly and knowledgeable. He made sure everyone had A challenge. Gave a good impression of a small friendly expert company. Looking forward to trying some of their other adventures.
