I am back from my big wall adventure in Brazil now (I was out there filming for a project that I hope to release in the Autumn) and it is lovely to come home to some nice thank you emails:

“Hi Rob
Just a quick note to say thank you for such a wonderful week on Skye.  It was my first experience of the Cuillins, and for me, the days in the mountains were pitched at just the right level.  Enough tricky sections of scrambling to challenge me, which is just what I wanted, but not too much that it totally scarred me, or exhausted me.
All of the instructors that I shared time with were fantastic.  I particularly appreciated the flexibility of the programme to cater for different needs.  David and Tarquin did a wonderful job, working together on the Thursday to quickly put a plan into place that enabled me to continue to the summit of Bla Bheinn following the unexpected necessity of David having to take Heather back down early.
I’d love to join you all again next year, and will be sorting out my booking shortly.
Hope things go well for you on your big adventure in Brazil.
Kind regards.
Cath”

Hi Rob

Just to let you know I had a great weekend on the Mountain Skills Navigation course with Tarquin. He listened to what we all wanted to get out of the weekend and then delievered. I am not a natural when it comes to these things and he patiently persevered in explaining things to me, sometimes several times, which I really appreciated. Of course he knows his stuff but the skill is in its delivery to a group of strangers whereby everyones needs are taken into account. His (mostly!) easy nature allowed the group to gel and develop a good comradery for the short time we were together and to have fun. He negotiated well to get a balance between navigation skills and mountain skills and the scramble up Tryffan was a great call.

Although I didnt understand everything Tarquin taught us, I understood everything I went on the course to learn and more. Tarquin has given me the confidence and enthusiasm to get out and practice what I have learnt and to enjoy the mountains even more than I have to date by following others.

When I feel I have become more proficient with the basics I am sure I will come back to learn more.

So big thanks to Tarquin and thanks to expedtionguide.com.

Best wishes

Helen
