Hi Rob Just a note to say thanks for the day out last Friday. The route was great and I’m now up for lots more. It was just what I wanted actually, about the right grade to start my winter climbing - challenging enough without being scarily hard or too easy.

Superb Ice Climbing on Ben Nevis

Salut Robin! Thank you for an excellent few days of winter climbing. Caroline and I had a great time and, despite our weary looks at times, thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The more we look back on it, the more memorable it seems, and the more excited we get about coming back again next year. A Bientot Damien et Caroline

Scottish Winter Mountaineering on the Carn Mor Dearg Arete, Ben Nevis

Hi Rob, Thanks for a phenomenal weekend …. Really enjoyed it!

Hi Rob, Just a quick email to thank you for two excellent days climbing. It's fair to say I was blown away by how engrossing mixed climbing is and the quality of the routes. I also learnt a huge amount over both days.

Thanks for looking after us when we visited Fort William in december, we had a great time and were able to learn from you. You managed to combine a focused, professional approach with adapting to our needs and enabling us to have a great experience. As far as we were concerned we achieved all that we wanted too.

Hi Rob, Just a short message to thank you for your excellent instruction and guiding of the 'geriatrics' last week.

Thanks again for taking us into the Highlands last Monday. It was raining and snowing, yes, but we had a great day nonetheless!

Rob, I had a great day climbing Comb Gully with you - Thanks!

We did a climb with Rob Jarvis on Sunday 4th. Thank you very much for our day. It was brilliant. Rob was fantastic, and the climb on the ice wall really rounded things off.

Rob and Dave (Hollinger) were well worth ever penny. Their professionalism and approach was excellent, but what made it even better was the fact that they smiled and made us feel as though we were just climbing with mates. Thanks to them both for the adventure and thanks to you for organising it. Will be giving you some repeat business on the strength of this trip for next year.

Thanks for the most tremendous three days - I couldn't have done it without you. It is no exaggeration to say that the whole experience has changed my life and your expertise, patience and good humour were just part of what made the whole weekend so memorable.
