Why should I go rock climbing with Climb365?

We are a family run business that specialises in high-quality professional service. The clue is in the name.  We are a rock climbing business.  We specialise in rock climbing from beginner to experienced climber

We know that this might be your first-time rock climbing.  We want it to be brilliant for you.  We find some people are really scared of heights, needing to be really encouraged and made to feel safe, whilst others are super keen and can get stuck right in.

When we get to the crag we set up the ropes quickly so you get the most from your time with us. You will learn lots about climbing as well and we will teach you many of the skills you would use in a climbing wall.

We hold the highest rock climbing qualifications and bring our expertise to give you the best rock climbing session. We’ve actually trained and assessed many of the local instructors.

Above all it will be great fun, perhaps tiring and exhilarating but, definitely fun.

We have been working and enjoying taking groups climbing into the Lake District fells for over 20 years. We have a vast knowledge of the different crags and which crag will suit your group and the weather. All of our instructors enjoy climbing personally and we hope this comes across in the way we run your day. We are AALA licensed and therefore able to instruct groups of children and young people under 18 without their parents being present should this be necessary.

What is involved in rock climbing?

Most of our group rock climbing sessions take place on a crag no more than 25m high. There are a large number of routes of varying difficulty so there is something for everyone to have a go at. We will rig a number of different ropes and you can try as many different routes as there is time for. You will also learn how to tie in, safety a climber by belaying, abseil down from the climb and use appropriate climbing calls.

Where are the climbing venues?

There are many different crags and it depends on what type of day you want. Copt How and Lower Scout crag in Langdale are fairly gentle beginner’s crags, good for families and younger children with a couple of harder climbs. Stickle Barn crag in Langdale has some more challenging climbs for older groups. Black crag and Long Scar are fantastic crags up in the mountains by Wrynose pass and on a sunny day have great views. They both have a huge number of routes of varying difficulties and make a great venue for a full or half day out. We also use Shepherds Crag in Borrowdale and Brantrake crag in Eskdale. For smaller groups of 2 or 3, there is the opportunity to do a half day multi-pitch climbing.

What do I need to have done before?

No experience of climbing is needed. Come ready to have fun and be challenged.

Kit we provide

We provide all the technical gear e.g. helmets harnesses ropes etc.

We also have a quality stock of rock climbing shoes.  These enable you to climb more challenging routes and improve your rock climbing ability. We hire these at £9.50 per pair.

Do you need to bring anything?
Appropriate clothes for the weather.  Always worth putting in a warm jumper and a waterproof jacket.  Plan for the worst and hope for the best.

If you don’t hire rock boots that’s fine, just bring some trainers or walking boots.

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.

Costs for 1 person add £120 to the per head cost
Costs for 2 people add £90 to the per head cost
Costs for 3 people add £60 to the per head cost

For Example. abseiling in the morning and gorge walking in the afternoon.
