SUMMER CLIMBING COURSES

Join me on a climbing and mountaineering course based in North Wales or the Lake District and enjoy being guided on classic rock climbs, learning the skills to climb safely and confidently outdoors.

We offer a range of courses:

Mountain Guiding & Scrambling  - all abilities - Single and Multiple Day options.

Climbing Instruction ​ - Beginer & Advanced courses - Single and Multiple Day options.

Each course is designed with the clients goals in mind so not one course is ever the same.  It's a great way to learn the skills to climb independently in the mountains or enjoy an adventurous day under the support of your expert guide.  

If you would like more information on which course is right for you then please get in touch.

Please fill out our booking enquiry form with the dates you would like and which course you are interested in.

Once booked you will receive a full kit list and itinerary.  All of the technical kit is provided, however, we do not supply mountain boots or climbing shoes.
