A message from the owner and founder
I started climbing in 1973 when I was 7 years old whilst on a walking holiday in the Lake District and was hooked immediately. Although none of my family climbed, they all enjoyed and appreciated the outdoors and most of our holidays involved either mountains or beaches. Their appreciation of the natural environment rubbed off on me and 50 years on it’s still a big part of my life and I am happiest when playing in the outdoors. From an early age I was taught the importance of respect for both people and the environment.
