FAQs:

How much experience do I need? For our day-long climbing adventure, none at all! For bouldering and lead climbing courses we do advise that you should have at least have 6 months climbing experience (further details available under the FAQs of each course).

How hard will we climb? As hard, or as easy, as you want. Our instructors have plenty of experience taking new climbers outdoors for the first time, and will never push you into something you’re uncomfortable doing.

What should I wear? You’ll be exploring the great outdoors, so we recommend bringing layers for chillier days and a light waterproof jacket.

Where can I stay on multi-day outdoor climbing courses? The days will start in Kendal in the Lake District, and there’s plenty of local accommodation nearby, including hotels, B&Bs, and campsites. Summers can get busy, so we recommend booking early to secure your place.
