Satisfied Customers

Went bouldering outdoors for the first time with Matthew. It was a great experience. He made sure everyone felt safe, and learned all the skills to be able to go bouldering outdoors  safely. He was extremely accommodating when we had to reschedule due to weather. Excellent service - I would 100% recommend climbing and renting from Safe Sends."
