Excellent instructors! Carol and Richard are highly experienced and extremely knowledgeable. My own knowledge was virtually non-existent prior to the course but I certainly feel a lot more confident now - especially with regards to navigation with map and compass. Will definitely be returning for my assessment!

We spent a lovely two hours with Carol on two canoes with our children. It was a great way to see Wastwater and Carol had a very nice manner with our children. I would definitely use Carolclimb again.

We have used Carol Climb for our lower key stage 2 residential trip in the lake district for a good few years. They are excellent with the kids, very knowledgable about environmental facts, and first class canoeing instructors. We intend to use them for the next few years too!! We can not recommend Carol Climb highly enough to other school... More

I have just finished my first outdoor training course with carolclimb at Wasdale, the course in my opinion is excellent, a must for anyone out there like myself who have spent many days on the fells and mountains but have not gained the skills to handle those tricky weather days ,when the weather is poor or changeable. Not anymore though,... More

I had a very good training week in Wasdale last October. The set-up was very enjoyable, the sessions very informative and the whole atmosphere encouraging and positive. Richard's knowledge about navigation was phenomenal quite inspiring and Carol and Richard offered a good standard for getting ready for assesment.

I have used Carol Climb for two years now with a group of teenagers and I have to say their professionalism and experience was second to none. Group control was excellent and they offered a huge variety of activites (canoeing, climbing, expeditions) for all levels of experience. As team leader (and a D of E assessor Bronze-Gold) I would not... More

CarolClimb is an outstanding organisation, who I stumbled on by chance, and I am delighted that I did!!! On returning from an operational tour in Afghanistan, I was keen to spend time in the Lakes formalising my outdoor experiences - ML, SPA and Canoeing/Kayaking. Carol and Richard, are hugely experienced outdoor people, but are also at the heart of the... More

I have used Caraolclimb for a number of years; they have excellent knowledge, a friendly demeanour and are very encouraging. Carol and Ric have a superb knowledge of the local area and plan their sessions to meet the needs of those they are leading. Aways a delight to see them and a shame to wave goodbye at the end of...

Had a fantastic 6 days completing the ML Training course with Carol and Richard from CarolClimb. Firstly, what a great base; after a long drive from Essex I immediately felt refreshed when I arrived at the Youth Hostel. Sitting in its own grounds by the waters edge, a fabulous building full of character, really friendly staff and the views across... More
