“I would certainly recommend Rock and Rapid to any group wishing to take part in a long-haul expedition and I sincerely hope that the school will have many opportunities to work with Keith and his team in the future ” Melinda Kennedy, Teacher, Powys
“The college is just about to send a second group of students to Africa with Rock and Rapid Adventures. The first group who visited Kenya found it a life changing experience ” Steve Williams, Teacher, Worthing
“Tom has obviously had an amazing time with you. Thanks for giving them all such a wonderful opportunity and taking such good care of them” Laura Childs, Parent
“I think it’s true that Africa manages to get under your skin. It’s a place I’ve always wanted to visit since I can remember, and the opportunity the team at Rock and Rapid provided is still somewhat unbelievable” Stephanie Allen, Student
“I have a fear of heights so I set myself a challenge to go rock climbing!! Simmo and Gareth were absolutely brilliant in helping me get my mind over the heights and I am definitely going to go again!! Great for fitness great day out! Many Thanks all” Ellie – Taster Session
"It was a great way to start the day, that first jump in was a real wake up for all of us! The instructors were very good, kept all of us entertained and adapted well to the pace of the group, giving multiple options to every one from the jumps off the biggest ledges to the options to swim or climb around certain parts. The afternoon Surf SUP session was also a winner, everyone had a good time." Mark Patterson - Stag Party Participant
“I first experienced Rock and Rapid three years ago when I was looking to try something new. I had a taster session on the indoor walls and had such fun. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating for a complete beginner, with endless patience!! Since then they have opened up a world of opportunity for me and in June 2013 Rock and Rapid organised a challenge to Kilimanjaro which I took part in. They took care of everything right down to the last detail and I can truly say it was and experience of a lifetime and would not consider doing this type of trip with any other company. I have and will continue to recommend to all of my family and friends” Steph Knight
“My daughter wanted to have a rock climbing party for her 9th birthday party, having tried climbing walls once or twice before, so we booked a 90 minute taster session for her and 8 of her friends at Rock and Rapid.
The centre was busy, but not too busy, and it seemed very well managed. Safety was paramount at all times, and the instructor engaged well with the children, encouraging them to push their boundaries, but not too far.
We started in the bouldering room - a room with climbing no more that 10 feet high, but some challenging routes. Because of the crash mats, no harnesses are required here.
Then off to the main wall - the girls tried pretty much all of the routes, and were instructed in safely belaying each other. The instructor was extremely attentive, and seemed to have eyes in the back of his head where safety was concerned.
In summary, an really nice, fun evening, amazing value for money, and an experience that a bunch of 8 and 9 year olds won't forget!” Birthday Girls Mum!
“The guys at rock and rapid are amazing my expedition to Nepal would of not been the same without them keep doing what your doing guys :) would recommend to anyone” Cameron Wood – School Expedition Participant
“We hired the Bunkhouse for 3 nights for a group of around 40 teenage girls. The bunkhouse was lovely and clean and roomy. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed and once we'd got used to the oven, we were able to cook everything we'd planned. We particularly loved the use of the washing machine and tumble dryer - extremely useful after a very muddy walk up to North Molton and back.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, both leading up to our stay and during. The girls loved the climbing wall, zip wire and low ropes activity. We enjoyed the setting of the centre especially the camp fire. However, it would be great if the campfire be further away from the road as we did have difficulty hearing each other whilst story sharing time!
For the price of the bunkhouse and the wonderful setting and excellent staff, we would highly recommend this venue for a group!” Mandy – Bunkhouse Customer
“Wicked place, sweet bouldering room with current problems to 7c, really nice training room with nice campus and system boards. Really well priced and really relaxed atmosphere. Nice log burner and squishy sofas in the cafe area, definitely worth a trip if out this way.” Rik Paxford – Climbing Centre Customer
“Thank you rock and rapid for the amazing trip to Greece, it was more than I could have ever imagined. Thank you again” Ethan Johnstone – School Expedition Participant
“I have thoroughly enjoyed both ladies nights and it's fair to say, each time I left a better climber than before I arrived. Both nights were well thought out, a lot of fun and dare I say it, a great work out. I hope they continue and I hope more ladies make the effort to come as they will be missing out.” Laura Skilton - Climbing Centre Member
