An absolutely fantastic course! Tom is a top quality instructor, extremely knowledge, approachable and a great laugh. We spent two days in the Peak District and there was not a single dull moment, he adjusted the pace of the course for our needs and pushed us out of our comfort zone. Loved the entire experience and hopefully will do something similar again soon!

Another fantastic 3 days of climbing with Hatt adventures. We met up with Tom in the ogwen valley in north Wales for 3 days of lead climbing tuition. Having only spent a year or so climbing the sandstone back in Sussex the step up to the mountain environment could well have been a daunting one. This was not the case though. Tom guided us through all aspects of leading and seconding on a route with clarity and patients! Covering everything from kit to rescue methods over the 3 days. On the final day under a swarm of midgie attacks and some light rain I completed my first ever lead climb! This course has given me the confidence to go out onto the mountain and climb safely with all the right information. If your thinking of taking the next step up from sandstone or wherever you are climbing then this is the course for you! Great fun great climbs great information. Many thanks once more.


Jon and I got back from north wales today. Just thought id let you know how much we learnt and enjoyed ourselves!

Ian is very professional, great fun and a very nice guy! The course was very informative and Jon and I cannot wait to get our own gear and get on the rocks again (even though it might break the bank haha).

Spectacular once again Tom :)

Having already attended the introduction to rock climbing course we had already experienced the first class tuition that Hatt Adventures provides. The lead climbing course was even better. Tom & Ian assessed our goals and capabilities over the 3 days. They would repeatedly push our boundaries in a supportive and fun way, but safety was always paramount.

Tom and Ian have a real passion for the outdoors that naturally rubs off onto you. They are skilled, knowledgeable and really care about empowering you with first class training so you can go out and achieve your goals. They are also both genuine and nice guys that we shared the evenings with after each day had finished.

Since attending the course we have successful climbed Triglav’s North Face (Europe’s 2nd biggest wall) I simply would not have had the confidence to make a bold moves while being backed in a corners, or the belief in my equipment in the event of a fall. We all acknowledge without their training this climb would not have been possible.

Thank you for 3 memorable days.
