Been to Vertical Chill this morning for a couple of hours. Had great fun practicing my ice climbing skills. Many thanks to Will for his diligent belaying and keeping us both safe. Well worth a visit before doing it for real.

My son and I really enjoyed this experience. Mat who did our induction and instruction was really good with us. We got so much more out of his advice instead of employing our normal techniques for bouldering. It was a great and really enjoyable experience...More
