Rock Climbing in the stunning Lake District  

Great fun with like minded adventurers sampling the best of the South Lakes Limestone

The south lakes is the place to go for lots of climbing beacuse limestone is an amazingly feature rich form of rock.

The rock is brim full of  climbable lines stacked shoulder to shoulder.

Routes are short, easy to protect and quickly accessed. More climbing, more coaching and more fun. 

When we meet up we will have a quick briefing and information sharing session to work out everyones goals and experience. After a quick review of systems to ensure everyone is on the same page and we will get climbing. 

There will be lots of climbing time and opportunities to push yourself and learn as, well as sit back and enjoy the routes. 

Lovely Accommodation

Relax after a great day in beautiful wooden cabins

We have chosen these cabins because they combine a caring owner, nice cabins along with  great proximity to pubs, the indoor climbing wall and the train station. 

The site has only ten cabins in total, each at the end or thir own short drive. It gives a great sense of space and calm and ensures that only your vehicles are moving around in your area. 

There is a selection of doubles, twins, bunks and triples. You can even hire a cabin to yourself if you would like the extra space. 

Fantastic Food 

Fuel for fun 

Lovely simple food is prepared by the instructors, with all meals provided. There is also access to the kitchen to make you own snacks and brews. Help washing up or chopping is always appreciated but not mandatory.

Breakfast is cereal, toast and something hot in a bun. 

Lunch is fresh local pie, cake and hot drinks.

Saturday dinner is typically Lasagne , with garlic bread and salad. 

On Sunday we normally stop for a warm lunch and recovery near the climbing venues - which means we can climb untill the last minute and send you home with a packed meal for your journey.
