You will always have a cracking day out with Sam. His coaching skills are superb. Using the perfect mix of knowledge, encouragement and humour he has enabled me to climb harder than ever before, and time spent with him is always an adventure! Thanks Sam!

Sam is an excellent instructor and he tailored his style depending on circumstances. He used his imagination to make the mountain day both engaging and informative. He was safe and made sound judgement calls so everyone got the most out of the day and got home safely; despite the weather and tough terrain!
