Booking our mountaineering and climbing courses

Most of our mountaineering and climbing courses are “Private” courses. These are very competitively priced but still bespoke, tailored to meet your needs. They can involve any combination of the activities listed on the Summer, Winter, Indoor and Navigation pages. Starting prices are shown on the page for each activity.

We will talk to you about your personal aims and objectives, your current level of experience and ability, and what you are looking for from the course. Together, we can then agree the most appropriate course content. Once you have made a “Private” booking then your course is guaranteed to run.

We also offer a number of “Open” courses. These can usually work out cheaper on a per head basis but are only run on pre-set dates. Scheduled dates and prices for “Open” courses are shown in the Calendar.

“Open” courses are subject to a minimum number of people booking. This means that you will be attending a course with other people who have different levels of experience and different goals. The course is not guaranteed to run until the minimum number of bookings has been reached.

If your intended course is not available on a date that you would like, then please get in touch anyway as we may be able to schedule a new course for you.

    2. Complete the online enquiry form (left) and we will get in touch to discuss your plans and our availability. We will discuss your ideas, aims and current level of experience and ability. We will consider the weather and prevailing conditions, and think about which locations will be most suitable. We can also discuss what equipment we provide and what you will need to bring yourself.
    3. We will send you our booking forms, including a medical declaration form, and a copy of our terms and conditions. Once you have completed and returned these and made your payment, then you have a confirmed booking.
    4. Shortly before the date of your course, we will be in touch again to check that everything is alright and, if necessary, to indicate that a change of plan may be required (e.g. due to weather).

    Risks

    We take every care to ensure the safety and well-being of our clients. However, by their very nature, mountaineering and related activities involve an element of risk which can never be totally eliminated. All our clients should be prepared to accept these risks and to take responsibility for their actions.

    Mountain Training participation statement: “Mountain Training (MT) recognises that climbing, hill walking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions. MT has developed a range of training and assessment schemes and associated supporting literature to help leaders manage these risks and to enable new participants to have positive experiences while learning about their responsibilities.”

    British Mountaineering Council participation statement: “The BMC recognises that climbing, hill walking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement.”
