Rock climbing is great for groups and is also a great way of tiring out the kids. It works really well as a half-day session, enabling you to create your perfect multi-activity day by marrying this activity up with half a day of abseilingscramblinggorge scrambling (aka. ghyll scrambling) or canyoning.

Rock climbing is also perfect for Hen and Stag parties and is brilliant as part of a team building day for corporate clients.

If you’re wondering what it is like to spend the day rock climbing with us, then check out this great write up by one of our clients who joined us recently for a multi-activity day >> http://heelwalker1.blogspot.co.uk/2013/06/rocks-ropes-conquering-fear-with.html

A sunny day in the Peak District

Ages and abilities: We have climbs that cater for all ages and abilities, from shorter more friendly crags to those that will definitely make your legs shake and test your ability! The youngest person to climb with us so far was 5 – the oldest well into their 70s.

Group sizes and ratios: Generally, we run private, bespoke sessions for just you and your party. At busy times you might be part of a larger group. If you want a private session, then just let us know (there is no extra cost). We put your safety first so the maximum instructor:client ratio that we will work to is 1:8 – if your party is bigger than 8 people then there will be more than one instructor.

Venue: We will choose a venue that suits your aspirations and minimises the travelling that you need to do. In the Lake District we have rock climbing venues in areas like  Coniston and Langdale, as well as further north in the Keswick and Borrowdale areas. We can also run sessions in the Peak District, in Snowdonia and in Scotland too.

Kit:  We will share a kit list with you when you book, but all you really need are warm and waterproof ‘outdoor’ clothes and footwear. We will provide all safety equipment such as harnesses and helmets, plus buoyancy aids and wetsuits if you are joining us gorge scrambling or canyoning. All our kit is in excellent condition and is replaced regularly.

Times: ½ a day runs from 9.30am to 12.30pm or from 2pm to 5pm. A full day runs from 9.30am to 5pm, with a break for some lunch, or to move to the next activity. We believe in bespoke, tailored sessions though so we will always do our best to work around your other commitments and time constraints.
