Guided Rock Climbing

We offer a range of rock climbing courses, including guided rock climbing, in the Lake District and Snowdonia, the Peak District, and Yorkshire, We do not schedule these in advance on specific dates, as we prefer to make each one bespoke for you and adapt them to cater for different levels of ability and experience.

If you are not wanting to specifically learn new skills at the moment, but would rather broaden your experience of rock climbing in general, then some guided rock climbing may be a good option. This is very simple – we take you climbing on some great routes at fantastic climbing venues. You will still learn things, without a doubt, but the emphasis will be on doing as much climbing as possible. Maybe there are areas that you want to visit but feel unsure of yourself; or perhaps a famous route that you’d like to climb that is just beyond your current ability. Whatever the reason, some guided rock climbing days could be just the job..  (Ratio 1:2 max)

Courses are a minimum of one day in duration, depending on location, and are often booked as a two-day weekend. We can also run the course for longer periods, for example as a 5-day course to give you a more intensive burst of climbing.

What does the course cover?

This course is completely bespoke and will be adapted according to your current climbing ability and experience, along with your aspirations. We will discuss these in detail and then come up with a suggested list of routes for us to climb during the course. Of course, you may already have specific routes in mind and if so, then we will try to make those the aim of the course.
