My daughter loves climbing so we booked her on to a climbing session while we were on holiday. It transpired that she was the only person booked onto the session so she had one to one tuition with her instructor Ben.
Ben was brilliant, and encouraged my daughter to push herself without scaring her! She had an amazing time climbing the cliffs at Porth Clais and is still buzzing about it days later. Thank you Ben for giving Matilda such a wonderful experience.

We had a brilliant experience climbing down at Porthclais with TYF. Our instructor was professional but great fun too and gave you a great feeling of safety for people with limited experience. Highly recommended
Rock Climbing and Coasteering

Had a great timing doing the popular Coasteering with our guide Ella. A short walk with your instructor from St David's to stunning coastline to scramble and jump into the sea with quality wetsuits that make the sea feel like the Mediterranean Your kids will love it. They will adapt the session to what you want to do (high or low jumps) Great fun!
Also had a perfect Rock Climbing session with Matt, who knows his stuff and effortlessly made everyone feel safe and relaxed and made the most out of all the climbs we did. Helpful tips on climbing techniques too. He belayed us climbing so we spent the most time climbing. Nice to see the sea beneath you when you're climbing I've used several companies in the past giving climbing taster sessions to adults and kids and TYF was the best I've seen yet. TYF also provides the kids with proper rock climbing shoes if they don't already have them (other companies don't) so they get the best out of the climbs. You get what you pay for, and having used TYF I really rate then ,
Great climbing in an amazing location

I booked a climbing afternoon for my 14-year-old son with this adventure company. He had done a little climbing before but was certainly not very experienced. He met the instructors at the office in Saint Davids and was taken by minibus to Porthclais. All specialist equipment was provided. There were five other people climbing in the group with two instructors. He abseiled down from the top of the cliff above the sea and then climbed the rock face five times in the 3 and a half hour session. He said the instructors were encouraging, health and safety conscious and good fun. He returned full of enthusiasm having had a wonderful afternoon. We felt the whole experience was excellent value for money.
I was able to find a comfortable spot on the cliff opposite to watch the afternoon’s climbing and have a lovely video of my son climbing.
