I have to confess that I booked a session with my two boys with some fear and trepidation not knowing what I had let myself in for. Naturally I did not want to be shown up too badly in front of my children!.
As it turned out I need not have worried, from our first meeting you put us (mainly me) at ease. You have a professional yet friendly manner which helped me relax and feel that I could have a go at least. My boys loved it, you let them get fully involved, explaining things in a way that was easy to understand and your calm approach meant that there was no issue when we made mistakes. We all achieved more than we expected and the boys said they wanted to come again before they had finished giving you the kit back. Result.
All in all, an excellent morning. We will book again.

It was such a well organised event, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The Sheer Adventure chaps were fantastic and the day was really enjoyable, count me in for next year!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the Shopmobility team for the fantastic opportunity yesterday. Everyone was so friendly, helpful and supportive. Even the rain couldn't dampen the spirits.
The abseil team were brilliant to get everyone down in one piece, without any rushing, ensuring we all had individual attention and an experience never to be forgotten.
Once again many thanks to all the volunteers and I hope you have managed to raise a massive sum of money for your brilliant charity.

Cheers Ben, It was a great morning and everyone enjoyed it. We have managed to raise over £2,000.00 for our charity!!
Chris B September 2013
Thanks again for the great course over the weekend, Alex and myself really enjoyed it and definitely took a lot of good info away with us.
Andy P August 2013
We really enjoyed our abseiling session with you and liked the fact that you were able to adapt the session to suit our capabilities.
All in all we were very pleased with what we achieved on the day and maybe one day we will be back to do it again.

I had a great time rock climbing and it helped me to conquer my fear of heights a little. A really enjoyable experience and once I got going it made me feel more confident with my phobia.
Lee F July 2013
All I can say is that it was absolutely fantastic, we all had a great time......the entire group felt it was a great activity and everyone without exception enjoyed it immensly.
John M June 2013
We had a brilliant time! Thought it was really well organised, flexible for different abilities and extremely fun, whilst also ensuring everyone felt safe. We have plenty of friends/family in the local area as well as further a field, and will be recommending ‘Sheer Adventure’ and our excellent instructor Ben.
Cant thank you enough.
Chris T August 2012
Excellently organised, friendly and very professional (we all felt very safe). You also dealt brilliantly with a very large group of us (everyone was involved at all times). I also liked the fact that you had us do something that was achievable but that was also a bit of an adrenaline rush. The lads, and in particularly the stag, absolutely loved the activity. I would definitely recommend you guys to others.
James M June 2012
Thank you for a fantastic day! We both really enjoyed ourselves. The whole session was really well organised, and we had lots of encouragement when we got stuck! Would really recommend this for anyone who wants a day out with a difference.

Thanks for the abseiling on Sunday 27th May for the PC Foundation. I was sorry that I had to rush off and didn't get to say thank you to you and your team. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and was amazed that I wasn't nervous. You made it a memorable experience and one that I wouldn't hesitate to repeat.

16 dads, 1 grandad and 1 mum from Wraxall Primary School abseiled 60m down The Avon Gorge in aid of raising funds to level the playing field at the school. An amazing afternoon was had by all the abseilers and spectators and many wanted to go again. Ben and Carly were great, supportive and managed to get everyone down in one piece. Ben even managed to take some great photos in the process.I would recommend Sheer Adventure to anyone and everyone.
Thank you guys.
Wraxall Primary School Dangling Dads May 2012
We all enjoyed the abseil A LOT (Even those of us who were scared of heights were proud of what we did and enjoyed it.)
So far we are raised £770 so we are just amazed at the support of are friends and family and with kindness of all the people who have donated.
Brian was great!! And if we were doing anything like the charity abseil again we would deffo book through you as you were both very helpful on and off the cliff!!. Thanks for an amazing experience that none of us will forget in a hurry.
Rory S May 2012
Thanks for a great day. We both feel a great sense of achievement. You made us feel safe, you gave lot's of encouragement and made us laugh. You explained every thing clearly and answered any questions or fears!
Lucy P May 2012
Thanks for the abseiling, it was great fun, and felt very safe.
Ingrid K March 2012
Had an absolutely fantastic time with Sheer Adventure during a 3 hour taster course of climbing and abseiling. Would recommend this to anyone it is a really rewarding course even my fiancee who is extremely scared of heights managed to climb 2 of the 25 metre rock climbs and also abseiled down the 25m faces. The instructors are also superb, very reassuring and helpful, you know your in good hands. If you thinking about trying this sport this is the place to start!!!!
Lewis P March 2012
Thanks for providing a great experience. I thought the abseil event was well organised, the equipment looked new and the team from Sheer Adventure were welcoming, reassuring and professional even though the weather was wet and windy. My only regret was not being able to thank your team member personally who provided great encouragement at the top of the cliff – please pass on my thanks to him.
Sarah B October 2011
It was a great time for me. I have never done it before and I wasn't even sure if I am afraid of the heights.
You explained everything to me in the professional way. I knew exactly what I was supposed to do.
For the whole time I felt secure.
You have done a very good job. I would recommend you to anyone who would like to do the same thing.
In the future I might be contacting you to do some climbing and abseiling the same time.
Thank you for all you have done for us.
Bartosz Z June 2011
Everyone had a great time on the activity - something for everyone both strong and weak and excellent value for money. We were very grateful for your sense of humour about it all and thought you had an excellent blend of laidbackness and professionalism with regards to safety/information etc.
Nick H September 2010
Saturday morning was the perfect way to start the Hen! It was fabulous! All the girls loved it and talked about it all day.
I owe u a seriously big Thank You for actually getting me down! In all honesty, when booking it, I never thought I'd do it. I'm absolutely petrified of heights, as you saw. So thank you.... Your calming nature and your professionalism allowed me to trust you to get me down. I wonder if I did an abseil every month, would I get over this fear??? I think perhaps not.
I'll be sure to recommend Sheer Adventure to mates in future!
Take care and THANKS again!
Laura T July 2010
Just a massive thank you from us both for yesterday. We couldn’t stop talking about it all evening (and most of this morning) – its definitely started a new sport for us! Both of you were excellent instructors, and it was great to have a chance to try some different sorts of climbs. Thank you for your support, superb tutoring, and general postiveness. We never doubted we were in excellent hands – please thank Mike for the extra ‘pull’ up some of the harder bits! We’d both like to try them again in future, hopefully without needing any extra tugs. Can’t say more than thank you thank you, for an awesome experience.
Lucy S June 2010
I took my boyfriend and 9 year old daughter for an afternoon's climbing and abseiling with Ben. We all had varying degrees of experience and ability but, despite this, the session managed to challenge us and exceed all our expectations. Ben was amazingly supportive with my daughter and by the end she managed to make it to the top of the climb on her own (shrieking all the way)! I was then faced with the dilemma of either getting to the top myself or being mocked for all eternity! It was a very enjoyable afternoon and great value for money. I would strongly urge everyone to give it a go!
Alice C April 2010
Many thanks again Ben for making this a memorable event and I would definitely recommend Sheer Adventure to anyone interested in these activities.
Sara G February 2010
Me and a group of friends went rock climbing for my birthday, the day was excellent and we all really enjoyed ourselves, Ben ensured that everyone tried to there full potential and also set some of us a few challenges!! Thanks again Ben and I look forward to contacting you for tuition in the not too distant future!
Steve H September 2009
What a fantastic day, had by all on Saturday 13th June at Uphill Quarry in Weston-super-Mare, Ben and his colleagues were great by putting everybody at ease, and the views from the top were excellent with views across Weston Bay and beyond. We also helped raise in excess of £1000 for the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.
Rachel M June 2009
Brilliant, skilled, patient, and good humoured. Sheer Adventure enabled me to face my fear of heights at Uphill Quarry and raise money for Jersey Hospice. I recommend Sheer Adventure for their professionalism and care. There is no one else I would want to be standing on a cliff edge with! Thank you.
Rev. Rob M June 2009
Hi Ben! just wanted to send a quick email to thank you so much for Saturday - we had a brilliant time ... and we'll def spread the "sheer adventure" word.
