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 time to sit back and enjoy the routes. 

Lovely Accommodation

Relax after a great day in beautiful wooden cabins, funky lodge, hotel or campsite

We have a great selection of accomodation to suit your needs and aspirations.

We have checked out everywhere we reccomend and think you will love them. 

Normally we would pick a single base for more of a social après-activity experience but due to restrictions this year we will have to arrange accomodation by bubble. 

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.

You can come on the dates listed (if no-one  else is booked on yet) or customise it to suit just your needs, dates and aspirations.

For 4 or more people often a trip or activity costs less if you take it private 

Book Friends and family

Request customisations

When we plan a trip or activity we design it to maximise the range of needs its accessible to. 

The same with dates we have to take a guess when a trip would suit people. 

We love requests to move dates to suit you and we love to take a standard trip and focus it on a particular need set.  We call them editions and regularly specialise activities for people. 

Let's talk about alternative dates and customisations
