Classic Rock climbing course

5-day Classic Rock climbing course Lake District

Why should I do this rock climbing course?

If you are keen to do as much rock climbing over 5 days as possible then this course will suit you. Whether you have done some indoor wall climbing and you want to transfer your skills outside or you just want to go rock climbing and have never done it before. This course will take you to a number of fantastic mountain crags where you can enjoy being guided up long multi-pitch routes while learning lots about movement and climbing along the way.

What does this course cover?

This is a really enjoyable rock climbing course to expand your knowledge and experience of climbing. We’ll take you up long multi-pitch routes on fantastic crags like Gimmer, Dow, White ghyll, Bowfell, Castle rock, Troutdale Pinnacle, Shepherds crag and Raven crag. You will be learning how to move smoothly and efficiently on the rock, how to tie on, belay, take out rock gear, use climbing calls, look at different ways to grip the rock and hopefully enjoy some sun and good company at the same time.

What do I need to have done before?

No previous climbing experience is needed as we can teach you all the skills on the way. Of course, if you’ve done lots before this is also a great course as we plan to get as many classic routes done.

Who else will be on the course?

The course will be run on a maximum of 1 instructor to 2 client ratio.

This course is aimed at people who want to try out climbing for the first time, or who might have done a little indoor climbing.

This course gives you more than just a try it out session. Two days to really gain confidence and enjoy rock climbing to the level that suits you.

We will teach you lots of skills and coach your movement as you begin to learn about rock climbing.

It’s really fun and will be as much of a challenge as you want.


In the past, we have offered set course dates but have generally found that clients prefer dates that suit their diary.
Responding to this, we now offer this course on any 2 consecutive days to suit both your and our availability.

If you have the choice weekdays are quieter in the hills but many clients have busy lives and weekends suit.

This is no problem, just get in touch and we will dovetail you into the programme.

The total course price for 2 people is £1150, that’s £575 per person.

We can work 1:1 as well and the total 5-day course fee would be £1050.
