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.

Does this sound like the ideal family break or a great thing for your-up-for it mates? why not take the trip just for yourselves?
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
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.
