Climbing is a great sport which is gaining popularity all the time.
You don’t need to be super fit; flexibility and self belief play a much bigger part. It’s also a good team activity as you are totally reliant on a partner for your safety. We give you full training in how to do this and make sure you are totally happy before ascending. Ropes are attached to an anchor point above you and as you climb, your partner “takes in” the rope through a clever device which will hold you if you slip. In this situation you cannot fall (but you can slip over and lose your grip) and you dangle on the rope like a giant spider. When you reach the top you are lowered back by your partner – similar to abseiling but controlled by someone else. We typically set up climbing routes which are challenging but attainable – at the end of the day you will have sore muscles but a huge sense of achievement.
Progressing climbers can also be helped. We can assist you in the technical aspects of gear placement, setting belays, leading and all manner of rope trickery to give you confidence when you venture out on your first routes.

This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:

  • Families
  • Hen / Stag parties
  • School groups

Day 1

On arrival you will be fitted out with harness, helmet, and (if you have requested them) climbing shoes - otherwise trainers are fine. Your instructor will have set up a selection of climbs for you which are meant to be a challenge, but at the same time achievable. Please note all our climbs are "top rope - bottom belay" with a very few exceptions - so if you want to lead climb, look elsewhere. (If you have no idea what this means then this session is perfect for you.) You will have an opportunity to do each climb as well as "belaying" - this is using a special device to protect your climbing partner and prevent a fall. Your instructor will guide you through the various steps and encourage you to use different techniques to get to the top. ROCK CLIMBING IS VERY WEATHER DEPENDANT so if it's a terrible forecast we will contact you and arrange an alternative. (it's grim climbing in the rain!)
