Hi Alan

A few thoughts from Russell, myself and the boys regarding the Verdon and James and Eds climbing days with you last summer.

We of course arrived in the Verdon Gorge last summer with high expectations of some stunning scenery and some thrilling and challenging climbing with a great guide. Our expectations were well and truly exceeded in all areas. 

The Verdon is completely different from anywhere that we have climbed before mainly due to the heights involved and therefore lengths of the routes. Climbing with you Alan meant that we absolutely got the most from our Verdon experience. Your enthusiasm for the area and the sport is infectious and your climbing,coaching and guiding skills are spot on. We felt that you were always on our agenda using your in depth knowledge of the area, the routes and the weather to help us to achieve exactly what we wanted from the experience. 

In James and Ed's words :

The Verdon Gorge is sick!! The thrill of being so high and completing 200 metre, 3 hour multi pitch routes is amazing and something we'll always remember. An awesome 2 days!

All of our very best wishes to you for a Happy and healthy 2012

Russell, Ali, James and Ed Mab
