3 weeks agoby lifeintheverticalNew book. Lost my last copy but love it and can’t wait to use it over the winter!
Had a great time on a 5 day sport to trad course that Mark tailored to my needs. Mark was helpful and professional throughout and went the extra mile. His climbing knowledge and skills were unrivalled as was his ability to pass his knowledge on.

We had a great day with Mark out on the Costa Blanca. Our brief to him was to help us boost our confidence whilst pushing our grade sport climbing, and in this he didn't disappoint. We both came away with some key points to work on, and feeling much more confident. Thanks Mark!
