''I felt I learnt a lot from the Mountain Skills Promo. Previously I would have had very little navigational skills for hill walking. I now feel more confident in my ability to map read and use a compass while maintaining a healthy awareness for potential dangers. The day was very chilled out and the group was good fun.''
Louise, Dublin

''Thanks for an excellent day. It opened up parts of the mountain that would not have been accessible without your team’s guidance and experience. Really enjoyable and educational!''
Michael, Tipperary
