Thanks for the photos and even more so for such a cracking week! We haven't stopped grinning since we got home – we were hoping to learn new skills and to stretch ourselves in a winter environment, but I don't think either of us had anticipated having so much fun in the process! Your technical skills speak for themselves, but you also have a special talent for creating a warm, inclusive culture in the team – it really did feel like a bunch of mates going for a great walk, despite the fact that we were all strangers to begin with! That's something that can't be taught – I suspect it has a lot to do with your evident passion for what you do and a complete lack of ego. You're one of the few people out there making a living doing something you truly love – how many of us get to do that?!
We're looking forward to doing a scrambling course with you.
All the best,
Natalie & Mike. Winter skills 5 day - March 2014
