100%+ recommend RockNRidge (Paul). We spent a truly fab memorable day with Paul where he coached and supported me get through my ‘fear of falling’ phobia. Great day , very well organised to build up my confidence with some rock climbing and then tackle the via ferrata with him at Honister. He is such good company too , putting me at ease throughout.Feel very lucky to have found him and going to use him again for more adventures as well as getting his gift vouchers for my family to have the same experience.In very safe hands 🙌 - he tackles all levels of abilities and ages … and different activities

Paul is a great leader with a calm and friendly approach to all things mountain related. I thoroughly enjoyed his company and look forward to more adventures next year.

Climbed the Old Man of Stoer with Paul in August 2023. Paul was an excellent guide, very safe, and we had a wonderful day climbing this gem of a sea stack. I appreciate his knowledge and ability to set up a tyrolean traverse safely, as well as his knowledge climbing, rigging anchors, and on the rappel.

We picked the wrong dates to camp but definitely picked the right guy. Paul was excellent in what he does. Communication was good although sometimes replies can take upto a day, understandable as he will be in mountains camping most of the days with no network.There was a forecast of heavy rains on the day we decided to camp & Paul even offered to reschedule if needed. Totallly recommend.

Excellent days climbing for my 14yr old. We were on holiday from Malaysia and my son was keen to try some of Yorkshires climbing he had a great full day at Almscliff Crag. Paul was great at explaining how to climb rock rather than the indoor walls and was absolutely trustworthy and safe through the entire day.

Our family of four very much enjoyed our recent guided mountain trip and scrambling with Paul. Our sons of 9 and 12 requested a mountain climb and, not being very experienced ourselves, we decided to look for some expert help with this. Paul not only led us up Bowfell along some lesser known and scenic routes, he also suggested adding a scramble along the way, which turned out to be one of the highlights of our holiday! We felt very safe in Paul's company and appreciated his knowledgable skills and guidance. My husband and I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul to accompany, teach and guide you in such activities; we look forward to booking him again in the future to learn new skills and enjoy his friendly company.

I booked Paul for a 1:1 2 day course in the Lake District, with the aim of developing my scrambling confidence and an introduction to some ropework.It was an incredible couple of days - Paul made some great choices of routes to tackle, encouraged me to try things outside my comfort zone and helped me to develop new rope skills not just in terms of technical / knots but also how to use the rock to my advantage and spot good solid anchoring points.I came away with two solid days of scrambling and learning under my belt, as well as plenty of advice on equipment, and I look forward to using this on future scrambles. I wouldn't hesitate to book Paul again if I was looking to further build my skills.

Booked a 4 day 1-2-1 course with Paul in the lakes, we did 3 days scrambling and 1 day rock climbing. Main objective for me was dealing with my fear of “exposure” for an alpine climb (Gran Paradiso), which was achieved.We started with a grade 1 scramble, which I found challenging and a mental struggle, but by day 4 I successfully completed the classic grade 3 scramble of Pinnacle Ridge. Paul made sure to work within my level but def pushed me to improve and brought a real coaching mentality, his approach really worked for me.Day 3 (rock climbing) was an adaptation after pushing myself too hard and straining my arm. We spent the day at a local wall focusing on footwork, mutiple different routes and a great intro to outdoor climbing. As a direct consequence of the gains I made I have now easily nailed all the grade 5+ climbs at my local climbing wall!Throughout Paul was friendly and knowledgeable about everything from the technical side to the local flora and fauna. And the weather was great too! Enthusiasm def fired, would recommend and book again. Thanks Paul!

Regardless of what course you book, we use a qualified guiding team. Another key point to mention is that these boys and girls have spent ‘an unhealthy’ amount of time in the outdoors. As a result of this you can rest easy knowing that you will receive the best time whilst out playing with us. AMI guides.
