Hi, my 6yr old son has just started indoor climbing at manchester climbing club, and he loves it!!!! I was a bit confused and concerned about all the gear,boots and "stuff" that he will need until I came across your web site!!! It has been a great help for me, with the links and advice that you have provided. Thank you very much for a great web site, and keep up the good work!!
Jason Shaw

I'd like to say how useful your site is. I found you while looking for info on children's harnesses.
Mark Snowdon

Great website, very useful thanks, I often refer to it for my four kids or send friends to it.
Nick Waldock

Its a long time since I saw such a useful resource. I get many emails from parents asking about climbing for kids. I will refer them straight to your site now!!
Dave Law

Your website is ace, I can't believe I've not found it sooner.
Suniva Anne

I just came across your very useful resource.

I have been looking at your website this weekend as I have been looking for a climbing harness for my son, and I just wanted to let you know how helpful I have found it. Thanks.

I think your website is fantastic
Richard Osborne,

First of all your site is brilliant. My kids (5 an 8) have just really got into climbing and a resource like yours is very valuable.
Nadim Siddiqui, Megagrip

Just a quick note to say thanks for putting in the time to sort out the web site. I have just bought a harness and helmet for my (soon to be) 5 year old daughter. I can't wait to go climbing with her and the effort that you have obviously put into the site made finding the right gear a doddle. Next time I see a mountain rescue collection tin, the fiver that will get thrown in will be on your behalf, so even if you don't benefit from putting in the hours, someone will.
All the best
Nick Kemp (aka frustrated ex-climber of London)

Thanks for such a useful website!
Rebecca Tennant

Thank you very much for your superb website. My husband & I were both keen climbers in the Aberdeen area during our time at University. After relocating to the south coast of Dorset and becoming parents, we are now desparate to get back into climbing with our 5-year-old son. Thank you for providing all we need to know about climbing with kids.
Happy climbing.
Jenny Lee

What a great site you have started, glad I found it from a google search.
Sam Mayfield

I've visited today, and really like it.
Mark Dean,

Hi, I have two girls 3 & 5, always taking them to the peaks when I go climbing (they both climb too) with my mates. We generally spend ages looking for a kiddie friendly crag in the guide book, but now I've found this website, especially the kid friendly rock page it's made things alot more easier and quicker to find somewhere.
A big congratulations on the website, keep up the good work!
Phil Russell

Have seen your site a few times and found it a very useful roundup of the available kit for kids.
Rebecca McCalla,

Just found your site after noticing the flyer at Calshot on Saturday, great info thanks for putting it together.
Justin Churcher

Just seen your page on 'Dancing Ledge' - wished I'd found it earlier - would have visited it this summer with the kids.
Mike Bryant

What a fab website! I have 2 little craghoppers who have been climbing on an ad hoc basis for 2 years (in frequent visits to walls and scrambling in the Lakes). They have just joined the 'Lizards' group at our local wall and are really enjoying it. They will love looking at this site - thank you for providing something aimed at kids into climbing!
Nancy Ingham
