Rock Climbing

Perhaps you’ve rock climbed indoors? Rock climbing outdoors is brilliant.

Great friendly, yet challenging cliffs to try out rock climbing for the first time.

This rock climbing page is where we offer half-day try it out sessions. As rock climbing is one of our main areas of expertise please view our Rock climbing courses and guiding for more technical training and coaching.

All levels are catered for. No experience needed.
Maybe you’re a beginner having never been rock climbing before to someone or a family who use indoor climbing walls regularly and want to try outdoor climbing for the first time.

We can set you appropriate challenges.

The best venues are in Langdale, near Ambleside. Also, there are some great climbs near Keswick which we incorporate into a full day of activities.

This is a great half-day activity.

We provide activities sessions solely for you and your friends/family.  You are NOT joined to any other group.
We believe in delivering high-quality instruction just for you, and so we do not club individuals together solely to make extra money.

We have found our clients prefer the benefit of the activity being just for them and the personal service this enables. We employ quality staff to run the session for you and so if you are a smaller group there is a slight increase in the cost.

All technical kit included. No hidden costs.

We work on a max group size of 1 instructor to 8 clients. We will provide as many instructors as your group needs.
