A Message from Kate

Climbing has been a huge help to me through some very dark times. When you’re climbing you really are living in the moment and all your problems are kept at bay. I also love the climbing community. As a beginner I was blown away by the friendliness, support and desire to share this amazing sport with others and by the positivity and encouragement you receive, even when you are struggling on the easiest of climbs! I’m thrilled that we can help others to access this fantastic sport and the many benefits it brings.
