I have used Morna's services on many occasions. She has helped me with my indoor climbing technique and guided me through my own climbing award training. Morna currently coaches my son who is in a climbing academy. He achieved a second place in a recent junior climbing series competition thanks to her help with his climbing technique for lead climbing and bouldering. Myself and my climbing buddies had a great day outdoor climbing with Morna. She organised the whole day perfectly, choosing the location, setting up the top ropes and guiding us through the different routes.
