“Excellent climbing course in the beautiful Peak District”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Paul Lewis and his team led a fantastic leading course - at the right pace, lots of encouragement, easy to understand technical advice, and all great fun too. Paul is friendly, knowledgable and professional - his passion for climbing and the outdoors is inspirational. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, regained my confidence to lead and upped my skills. Thanks Paul.

“Classic climbs of the Peak District”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

This is the second outdoor climbing course I have attended run by Paul Lewis of Peak Mountaineering and I hope to go on more in the future as my expertise increases. Paul is an expert in his field and even on a drizzly, cold day in May managed to find crags to climb that weren't too wet and dreary. He certainly showed us a variety of locations and climbs were well thought out to suit the ability of the group. Paul's manner as a leader is reassuring and calm. He happily shares best practice; suited to any ability client. He also maintains a sense of humour throughout and is a pleasure to spend time climbing with. I would definitely recommend Peak Mountaineering to anyone.

“Fantastic and Enjoyable Courses for All”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

I have attended at least three of Paul's Peak Mountaineering courses, and I cannot recommend them enough. Paul and his team ensure that you are put at ease, have fun but also learn a hell of a lot. Paul's company provides an array of different training opporunities, and those who have taken their ML Assessment with Peak have raved about the quality of the course and instruction provided. I can't wait until my next one!
