The Wales Matterhorn preparation 2 days was a great introduction to the type of climbing and movement required to have a successful Matterhorn trip and I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking of going for the big one. This was followed by a specific training period out in Chamonix, before and during Rob and his team could not have been more helpful, all ending up with a successful and enjoyable summit and return. As a result of the challenge, support and fun I have had I am now busy planning next years adventure….

Quick note to say how great Ben was and thanks for selecting him as my guide. No worries (well, not many…) about not making the summit – it was an unexpected and educative mountaineering day of Alpine Scottish mixed…. and I had a very enjoyable and challenging week all round. Off to Croatia now to relax with some kayaking and beach. 🙂

I have to admit I had a difficult day, slow. But Ben was quite the trooper! Patient, knowledgeable, trustworthy and kind ! Hold on to him; you have a star player there!
Thanks again Ben, brilliant trip, expertly guided 🙂
Going for a celebratory glass of wine now….!
