We offer rock climbing courses based in beautiful Snowdonia, North Wales which are suitable for all levels. Some examples of our most popular courses are below.

All of our rock climbing courses are instructed by top level Instructors on a 1:1 or 1:2 basis. They are tailored specifically to you, offering you complete autonomy and flexibility during your time spent climbing with us. Prior to your course, we will liaise with you to understand what level you’re currently climbing at and, what you hope to achieve in the days you have booked.

Rock climbing in North Wales is best undertaken from May through to October. You can choose any dates that suit you and we’ll find the very best Instructor to match your rock climbing objectives.


Moving outside

Climbing indoors is really great fun but climbing outdoors is an entirely different and amazing experience. The skills you have from your indoor climbing will have prepared you perfectly for taking your climbing outdoors on to real rock. There’s a lot to learn outside but you’ll pick it up quickly and be able to achieve more that you thought possible.


Learning to lead trad

Being on the sharp end, ‘on lead’, is where rock climbing truly comes into its own. Placing good gear, building excellent anchors and having slick rope work all take time and practice to master – but it’s all part of the process in becoming a safe and independent rock climber. Our Instructors will coach and instruct you through the process of becoming a lead climber at a pace that suits you and, when your ready to take your first lead, will be right next to you all the way.


Guided classic and hard rock routes

Tie in and enjoy the rock climbing! There will of course be plenty of top tips and teaching along the way but the emphasis on this course is mileage on quality rock climbs. If you have that dream route you would love to climb or crags you would like to visit then let us know, otherwise leave it to us and we promise you the very best of North Wales rock climbing.


Performance coaching

High level coaching from qualified top level climbers. We have a select number of Instructors who deliver these courses for us on a highly personal level. We will work with you to help develop any area of your climbing, for example, movement, fear of falling, climbing tactics and training.
