My son and I booked 2 days with Eddy from Young’s Adventure Solutions to develop our climbing in Swanage. Eddy was excellent and helped us with both technical aspects in setting up belays and abseils as well as develop our climbing techniques. We had a really great time and our climbing has moved on a huge amount. A very talented instructor; the best guide I have used over the years. Thanks Eddy and we will definitely book you again soon.
