Myself and my two sons have done multiple climbing trips, both week-long trips to Spain and day trips to the Lake District and Northumberland with Jon. Jon is an excellent climbing instructor. His guidance has been crucial for myself in developing as a climber. In all occasions the primary focus is on safety and doing things right. This is something that couldn't be more important when it comes to climbing. Jon has been working on each our development as climbers individually, which can be sometimes really hard with very different goals. Each time, we have gone climbing we have all reached our goals and felt that we have learnt a lot - in our different target areas. Jon's knowledge is vast. He knows both Spain and Northumberland crags inside and out. He knows when and how to push people to their limits without overdoing it. Jon is great at communicating his knowledge and makes sure he passes the information on the climbs to us afterwards. He together with his wife Caroline are providing experiences in a methodological manner, safely and in such a way that every time something gets learnt. Recommend them any time! Thanks so much for all guidance this far on our climbers' journey!
