Right from the beginning of the walk up to the mine entrance Matt gave us some history about the area and about mining. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about the slate and mining industry. He gave us a thorough safety briefing... More

Had such an amazing day being taken through the slate mine, loved hearing about the history of the miners and the slate industry in Wales too. Cannot fault the day whatsoever- what a way to push yourself out of your comfort zone, keep up the good work!!!

Firm but encouraging which is what I needed when I was getting scared, he helped me ALOT. It's lovely the support you get from a group of strangers when your in that sort of environment too....

Stag party spent the day in the very professional, knowledgeable and fun supervision of Matt and Will. We went after a recommendation and will leave one, go! My life has improved because of this! Goliath, cork screw, bridge of death, bridge of 'mild peril' and the leap of faith. Thank you!

We had matt and will as our leaders on the ultimate extreme trip and they were... More
