Testimonials : Pyrenees: Expedition Skills Course: Pyrenees Winter Training (7 day)

An excellent course, well run and comprehensively organised, a wide range of experiences and opportunities, expertly delivered in a friendly and fun atmosphere. The skills I’ve learnt are essential to safe mountaineering and trekking, this course has now opened doors for me to new adventures. Rolfe and Ben provided a huge range of opportunities to learn vital skills but also went out of their way to contextualise those skills into real world mountaineering scenarios which not only helped me to learn the skills but also recognise their real-world application, relevance, and importance.

Sleeping in the snow-hole in sub-zero conditions high in the Pyrenees will always be a bragging right! There is no one specific highlight as they were all so good, if there was one thing that I’ll remember, it will be the people on the course, especially the friendliness and approachability of Rolfe and Ben, and particularly Rolfe who is without doubt ‘unique’. You know you’ve had a great time when you arrive home exhausted, but with a huge smile on your face.

John, Expedition Skills Course 2024

Well organised, excellent guides, well cared for, learnt skills for future expeditions. Thank you to Rolfe and Ben for passing on their experiences and keeping us safe.

Delyth, Expedition Skills Course 2024

Absolutely awesome course! Legendary. Epic. Inspiring. Confidence building. I particularly enjoyed the jumar/climb/abseiling as am not really keen on exposure – this really helped overcome a lot of that and I feel much more confident in progressing now.

Paul, Expedition Skills Course 2024

An amazing experience. I’ve come away from the week feeling confident in climbing and abseiling without supervision and have learnt and repeated lots of different skills. Now on to do Kang Yatse!

Lynne, Expedition Skills Course 2024

I recommend this course 150%! I wish I could do it every year.
