Rock Climbing Skills

We believe everyone should be able to enjoy outdoor climbing. Our progressive skills courses will take you from beginner to expert in which ever style of climbing you wish.

Mountaineering Courses

Learning to climb in the big mountains is a natural progression for any budding outdoor hiker or climber. To help you progress towards bigger and greater things is why we exist.




Climbing Workshops

Our 1 day coaching workshops look at a variety of subjects from how to set up top ropes, how to look after other climbers, escaping the system, how to climb sea cliff and much more. Workshops are run throughout the year and are designed for anyone looking to further their knowledge.

Guided Trips

We want to take you to amazing places. We also want to show you what your capable of and teach you a few things along the way. We run trips throughout the year to some of the most inspiring climbing venues the UK has to offer. 

Navigation Training

Learning to navigate using a map and compass should be a priority for anyone heading out into the hills or mountains. We will teach you not only how to Nav safely over your chosen terrain but look at developing your knowledge of these areas so you can enjoy them more than ever.

Families & Groups

Outdoor activities have been scientifically proven to help bond people together. Whether you're with your family or friends we will provide you with an exciting day of challenge and adventure.


We release a new video every week on a different climbing subject to help keep the learning going. We cover a variety of skills, kit reviews and general information about all things climbing.   

About us

Established in 2018 with the premise of offering the highest standards of outdoor instruction and customer service, we aim to teach you more than just climbing skills.

Rent a Pad...

We do rent out bouldering pads from our shop, so if you do need an extra one or are traveling a long way, why not save the car space and hire one from us instead? 

How to find us...
