Performance lead Climbing course

I have spent this week climbing with a young lad called Stan, he is 14 and from London, a regular climber at his local wall for the last few years and even competing and winning at some high level competitions.

It's that time of year.... the summer isn't far away and it's worth thinking about summer alpine plans early. Booking guides and huts are worth doing in advance! And that isn't a marketing ploy by the way :)
