Went with members of my university mountaineering club. Booked an introductory session, arrived well in advance and realised that for just an extra £2 we got unlimited wall climbing/bouldering for the day on top of the ice climbing - well worth it. The ice climbing itself was brilliant, the instructor very helpful. The ice wasn't in the most pristine condition,... More
