Guided Rock Climbing


We offer a range of rock climbing courses, including guided rock climbing, in the Lake District and Eryri (Snowdonia), the Peak District, and Yorkshire.


We do not schedule these in advance, as we like to make each one bespoke. This is how we adapt them to cater for different levels of ability and experience.


If you do not want to 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.

Instructor:client ratio

On this course, there is a ratio of 1:2 (instructor:client) maximum.

Course Details

Who is the course for?

This course is for almost anyone, from total novices to the experienced climber.

Where is it held?

Our guided rock climbing courses are generally held in the Lake District or Eryri (Snowdonia), but they can also be held in the Peak District and Yorkshire and even in Scotland.

How long is the course?

Courses are a minimum of one day long, 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 aims and your current climbing ability and experience. We will discuss these in detail and then come up with a suggested list of routes for us to climb. If you already have specific routes in mind, then we may be able to make those goals of the course.

What equipment is included?

You will need to provide: warm clothing including a waterproof jacket; approach shoes or walking boots; climbing shoes; and a rucksack of 30 litres or more. If you have your own harness and helmet then you will probably be more comfortable wearing your own.

We will:-

  • Provide harness, helmet, ropes and all technical climbing hardware.
  • Discuss an appropriate kit list when you book.

What does it cost?

Prices for one day start at £235 for one person; and £260 for two people (i.e. £130 per person) etc. From the 4th day, a discounted rate will apply.
