Mountaineering course Lake District

“scrambling, mountaineering, easy rock climbing…… so much to do! so little time! 4 days of as much as you can cope with.

We both had a brilliant time! Stu was a great instructor, and the climbing was awesome. I would recommend this for anyone wanting to try climbing and will definitely be going again myself.

4-day Mountaineering course Lake District

Why should I do this mountaineering course?

This is a really flexible course aimed at those wanting to develop their mountaineering skills.

  • It may be that you want to spend the 4 days journeying around the Lake District being guided up the best mountaineering routes.
  • It may be that you have done some easy scrambles and want to progress onto harder more challenging mountaineering routes.
  • It may be that you want to focus on developing your personal skills ready for an Alpine trip or Skye Cullin ridge attempt.
  • You also might wish to try mountaineering and then go onto some introductory rock climbs in the mountains.
  • You may not be sure if you want a mountaineering course or a rock climbing course. Each day we will discuss, review and plan for the next, so you really can do whatever you like the idea of.

Whatever your aim or experience we can guide you and create a bespoke course to develop your mountaineering skills through the 4 days. This course will not leave you feeling like you didn’t quite do enough. You’ll be pushed just at the pace you feel comfortable and able.

What does this course cover?

Through discussion at booking:

  • we find out what experience you have.
  • what aims or aspirations you might have.
  • Make suggestions for skills and knowledge to develop.

This can be an experience style course where we guide you in the mountains or it can be a learning style approach where the aim is for you to become a self-sufficient mountaineer.

What do I need to have done before?

No previous mountain experience is needed as we can teach you all the skills on the way.

As this course is bespoke you and your friends will set the level.

Who else will be on the course?

The course will be run on a maximum of 1 instructor to 4 client ratio.

We can tailor this course to run for a number of people attending. e.g if you are a group of 4 people we might do two days 1:4 and then two days 1:2. The attention and development will be tailor to suit.

This way you get excellent value for money on day 1 and 2. Followed by the optimum attention needed on day 3 and 4 to aid progression.

What do I need to have done before?

No previous mountain experience is needed as we can teach you all the skills on the way. As this course is bespoke you and your friends will set the level.

A bit of hill fitness would be useful and the level is really set by your abilities.

If you want a steady fun relaxed 4 days we can vary our approach to suit. If your super fit and want to train for a Matterhorn ascent we can push you really hard.

It could be you have indoor rock climbing experience and aren’t sure f you want mountaineering or rock climbing. This mountaineering course is open to moving to rock climbing though discussion and review at the end of each day.
