We had the family introduction session, which was excellent. I was really pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I must admit I don’t have much to compare it with, but the feel of the building was light and airy, it was very clean and well maintained and had a great atmosphere. Our instructors were clearly knowledgeable and were very patient whist dealing with nervous climbers. The 90 minute session was enough time to try the three types of…
