Rock Climbing Courses

Introduction

We offer a range of rock climbing courses in Yorkshire,  Snowdonia in North Wales, the Lake District, and the Peak District catering for different levels of ability and experience.

Purpose

If you have never tried rock climbing and want to see what it’s all about, then have a ‘taster’ day. Or, learn how to make the transition from indoor climbing to outdoor rock climbing, if you have learned on an indoor climbing wall. If you want, make the progression from single-pitch climbs to tackling multi-pitch routes safely, usually high on mountain crags and sea cliffs. While the rock climbing itself is no different, multi-pitch climbing will always require additional rope skills. These include setting up belays and managing change-overs between each pitch. Abseiling is also an essential skills on multi-pitch climbs, for accessing the route, descending from it, or abandoning it in an emergency.

Perhaps you have been a competent second for some time, but want to learn to lead climb. Or, for the accomplished sports climber, do you want to learn how to lead ‘traditional’ climbs using leader-placed protection? Try single-pitch gritstone climbs in the Peak District, such as at Stanage, or dramatic multi-pitch rock climbing at places such as Llanberis Pass in Snowdonia or Gimmer Crag in the Lake District. Alternatively, you can have a long mountaineering day out on great classics such as the routes on the east face of Tryfan in Snowdonia.

All of these variations are courses and guided experiences that we regularly offer our clients.

Depending on your needs, we regularly run rock climbing courses in Yorkshire,  Snowdonia, the Lake District, and the Peak District.
