Beginners' Rock Climbing

Beginners' Rock Climbing

Trying out climbing on real rock for the first time.


If you have never tried rock climbing outside before come along on this one day course and we will show you why we love it! This course is ideal for anyone who has never climbed or has only climbed indoors. You will have the opportunity to try a number of climbs on real rock and learn the basics of rock climbing.

The course is based either in Langdale, one of the most scenic parts of the Lake District and only fifteen minutes by car or bus from Ambleside or in Borrowdale, which is within easy reach of Keswick. Precise details of the meeting time and place will be emailed to you when you book.

You will have the opportunity to try a number of different climbs which can be as hard or as easy as you like. We will also show you how to tie onto the rope correctly and how to ‘belay’ (i.e. hold the rope while someone else climbs and lower them back down again.) At the end of the day there will also be the chance to have a go at abseiling.

No prior experience is needed for this day: just lots of enthusiasm to try out a new challenge. We will meet at the climbing venue at 09.30 and the day will finish by 16:30. We will be outside all day. There are a number of suitable cliffs that can be climbed on in all conditions so the course will go ahead whatever the weather.

Our course are friendly and small - there will be a maximum of six particpants per instructor - so you cna be sure of personal attention. This particular course is for over 18s only. If you would like to come with your family please contact us about a private day just for you.
