Glad you had a great time and thank you for pointing out that you don't need to be a great swimmer to do watersports, in fact you don't have to be able to swim at all!

Thank you David, I'm glad we were able to sort the climbing day out for you in the end. We always enjoy having you back. Your review of Jack's Rake made me laugh though!

Haha, yes 25m does not feel all that small when you're stood at the top! Glad you had a great afternoon abseiling at Cathedral Quarry and caverns.
