Within the group there were students from both extremes of physical capability, and everything in between. All found something to challenge themselves with, and then experience the joys of success. The hour allocated seemed spot on.'

'Your Clip 'N Climb circuit provided an exhilarating experience for our 30 students. The fact that the students could choose which walls to climb, and in random order, made many feel less apprehensive and in control of their decisions. I was most impressed with the professionalism of the staff, in particular Dave who quickly developed a positive rapport with the group.'
Rana Richards, Teacher, South New Brighton School
'The automatic belays were really cool because you could jump off the wall and just float down.'
Michael Beattie, Student, Fernside School

Kate Suter, Student, Mt Pleasant School
'My favourite climb was the logs that when you climb to the top you get to hold the rope. It was so huge.'
Gul Agha Ahmadi, Student, Mairehau Primary School
