Rock Climbing is a unique challenge. A mixture of puzzle solving, balance and learned skill. Contrary to popular belief it does not require great feats of strength or exertion, but rewards effort and persistence with a fantastic feeling of achievement.
We offer climbing experiences indoors and on real rock. Both are sports in their own rights and equally rewarding.
Rock climbing is a great family and group sport that can be enjoyed in almost every city and country.
A weekend is a great way to get started climbing mixing indoor and outdoor sessions to get you off to a great start. In a weekend you should be ready to go to your local climbing wall and start climbing with no further instruction. (to climb top rope and on auto belaying style climbs).
We also offer trips abroad to climb a version of rock climbing called sport climbing which is different to traditional British climbing - the equipment is already attached to the rock - this is a great progression before going into traditional climbing and the weather is typically much more pleasant
If your party benefits from very exact times and a visual time table - no problem let us know
If your party needs a quiet and calm environment without strangers - let us know
We have a range of venues whereby a wheelchair can access the bottom and others with short flat walks.
We have a range of supportive harnesses and wheelchair abseil venues
We regularly climb alongside mobility-impaired users to support them
Rock climbing works very well with people with visual impairments as its a mostly tactile sport where feel for friction and balance is more important than seeing the route.
The key elements in climbing are very close to the face, our powerful lazer pointers can shine up to identify potential holds
Using radios on the harness, the team can keep close audible support without shouting
A parallel rope allows a guide alongside providing physical support, coaching and reassurance.
We can include those with audio impairments via high quality and needs aware instructors.
By arrangement, we can often source an assistant instructor fluent in BSL.
We possess a bank of 2-way radios we utilise to help those with reduced hearing to understand instructions and communicate. These can output directly to earpieces or T-loop compatible hearing aids
A rock day is a great way to get a taste of climbing where the emphasis is on having a great time and having a go.
After meeting and travelling into the climbing venue we quickly get you on the rock trying a variety of different climbing challenges.
Lunch is, as always, included.
Normally we have a go at abseiling, descending from the top while the abseiler controls the rope during the day.
We have a range of convenient meeting points to suit your needs and minimise travel time. We operate from venues near Coniston, Ingleton, Grange Over Sands and Ullswater.
Where the "try rock day" is all about getting hands on the rock and having a great experience the “Introduction to Rock Climbing” experience focuses on helping groups get started in the sport of climbing.
Mixing indoor and outdoor venues we look at all the skills needed to safely take part in climbing. You will leave ready to walk into a climbing wall with the skill needed to use an indoor climbing wall as a normal user and to be an outdoor “second”.
“Seconds” are partners to “lead” climbers, seconding is the path most climbers take to climbing outdoors. Seconds follow a lead climber up the rock, operating the rope, removing the gear and climbing literally “second”. Most seconds progress to becoming lead climbers over time and thus are always in demand.
Being a well trained second makes you a popular person to invite to climb with and recruit through clubs, climbing wall notice boards or online climbing forums.
A custom course to advance your climbing towards leading
The starting point for a learn to climb course begins with your own level of experience. The end point is to get you to the goal of being able to arrive at a British climbing venue and lead your own attempt to climb a route from the bottom to the top.
We will teach you about placing protection, rope management, escape strategies and looking after your second.
Typically, a person who regularly leads on indoor climbs will need 3 days to transition to climbing outdoors.
We run courses in the sun doing a form of rock climbing called sport climbing. Sport climbing is super accessible compared to British traditional climbing. In sport climbing the protection is permanently attached to the rock, this removes the need to place your own protection on the way up which speeds up and simplifies climbing.
Climbing becomes all about moving on the rock and allows leaders to climb confidently on much harder challenges.
A mixture of late year sunshine, excellent continental food and low stress climbing makes for a fantastic trip away with lots and lots of rock adventures. Oh yes and its very rare to be rained off!
