We love to get feedback on your time with us, below are just a small example of some recent reviews 🙂
Matt Upton – I have recently spent several days with Simon across a range of activities from walking, scrambling, weaselling and most recently NNAS bronze.
I learnt a huge amount and feel a lot more confident heading into the hills due to this course – it’s not just the syllabus that has taught me a lot, it’s Simons knowledge he shares built up over many years in the outdoors.
Couldn’t recommend it enough! – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Tommy Kearney –Brilliant weekend of climbing with Simon and Gary! Really nice knowledgeable blokes that you can learn from and have a laugh at the same time, 100% recommend cheers guys 👍 – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Holly Mackrill – Fantastic weekends climbing with Simon and Gary. Their encouragement, patience and guidance is brilliant, so you come away with a sense of achievement whether you managed to get to the top, or improve by one move on your last attempt. Relaxed, entertaining and very enjoyable. Already looking forward to the next session! – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Alex Hodgson – Finished a 2 day climbing course lead by Simon & Gary. Course was really informative, practical and fun. would highly reccommend to anyone whos slightly interested in climbing. I’ve had a wonderful time – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Alice Turner – I genuinely can’t recommend Peak-outdoor enough. An absolutely incredible time both rock climbing and doing the navigation course. I’ve learnt far more on these sessions than just skills. Simons consistent positive attitude and determination is tangible in every moment and this more than ensures you’ll have an incredible day regardless of the activity. His knowledge and skills are extensive and he’s more than happy to pass these on at whatever level you find appropriate. Value for money is 5/5!! Can’t wait to be back out climbing again soon with you!! If you’re wondering about booking.. just do it – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Wayne Richardson – Taken part in the Peak Outdoor 2 day bronze navigation course this weekend. Very informative and enjoyable at the same time, Simon certainly knows his stuff and delivers it in an easy to understand way and takes the time to go over the more difficult stuff until it clicks into place. I can highly recommend Peak Outdoor and now considering booking the Silver course ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Wesley Orvis – A man who knows all there is to know about the hills and mountains of the U.K. experienced and fun to be around. His passion is contagious and even though I class myself as an experienced mountaineer I would pay for a day out with Simon – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Elena Roddam – Professional, highly skilled and a natural teacher with a sense of humour. I contacted Simon to do an ML refresher course, his patience, clear explanations and knowledge thoroughly prepared me to pass my ML. Simon’s passion for mountaineering is contagious and inspirational and safety in the mountains his priority. Brilliant! Thank you! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Sarah Sutcliffe – Can highly recommend Simon Stokes. He recently guided our group on the Coast to Coast walk a 309km hike across England. What was so special about Simon was his genuine interest in each of us as people as well as the time he took to check on our well being. This was particularly important as it was quite a long walk and the first week although spectacular, was also quite difficult, or ‘technical’ as he put it. Simon had all the skills and knowledge you expect from a guide as well as warmth and his own Yorkshire brand of humour – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Vibeke Krogh – I did the Coast to Coast with Simon as our guide. His knowledge, competence, experience and passion was inspiring for a first time hiker. After this I am hooked and will be back to “bag” some more hills.
I can highly recommend Simon Stokes. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Shanus Lane – Simon Stokes gave us a great Coast to coast walk with excellent navigation,knowledge and professional guiding skills – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Angela Owen – We had an amazing day, Simon is such a supportive climbing instructor who helped me improve my technique massively.
We learnt so much today. Thank you. Angela – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Micheal McLaughlin – I’ve known Simon Stokes for eight years now and hill climbed with him numerous times, mostly in the Cuillins of Skye. Simon has a love of hills as big as his love of meeting people. His mountaineering tick-sheet and training record are impressive. I defy anyone not to enjoy a hill day with this guy – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Micheal Jones – I’ve climbed in the Himalayas with Simon and had many fantastic hill days with him in Scotland over several years.Simon is a vastly experienced and well qualified all round mountaineer. A great, fun guy, his passion and enthusiasm are inspiring. I’ve no hesitation in recommending Peak-Outdoor – enjoy and be safe – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Matt Hoey – I’ve had the pleasure of working with Simon in the Peaks on the DofE award. He is knowledgeable, professional and has a great work ethic. I’d happily work along side him in the future and would highly recommend him for any adventures you may have in mind – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Edward Pete Cook – He was very friendly and approachable and has helped me improve my climbing skills from placing gear to setting up anchors. He also gave me lots of hints and tips for improving my technique in climbing. I would highly recommend Simon & Peak-Outdoor – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Rory Evans – Simon was extremely helpful in teaching me the setup of gear and ropes for Trad climbing. He also gave me some great tips on smearing (which definitely improved my climb). I can now climb with my friends on harder routes, confident on my gear placement and anchor setup. Thank you – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Steph Dwyer – Rarely do you get such competence and experience with such a lovely down to earth bloke. Simon’s passion for the outdoors is palatable in all his does and his upbeat manner will be sure to put you at ease. I’d definitely recommend him as an instructor – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Scott Baxter – Great day with Simon – great to have a refresh on trad skills , incredibly knowledgeable about both techniques and the local area would recommend a day with Simon to anyone looking to progress on rock – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
