Fantastic day, instruction was well paced and the route progression was perfect. Gabriel has an education background and could easily move between the different lvls of climbers and languages. Recommend this course 100% if you want to try Rock Climbing. Will be signing up for the 2 day course now. You know it was good when you smile the whole day and then talk about it the whole drive home.
