Our start time and meeting point is 9:00am at Ogwen Cottage in the Owgen Valley. Most of the mountains we use are within walking distance from here, however occasionally we use some further away which are best suited for the course. Your own transport is advantageous however sharing lifts and car pooling can be arrange if we visit a slightly further away location. We will advise you if your instructor is planning on using a location further away before starting the course.

How to book:

To book its super simple, we have 'Open Courses' which run regularly throughout the year on set dates. Just select which date works for you and book online below. 

If these dates don't suit, then you can simply add a new 'Open Course' to be run on a date which suits you better? This will become a new 'Open Course' and will populate a new date on to our 'open course' list and other can join in.  

If you'd rather have us all to yourself, select 'Book Privately' and we will run this course completely private and bespoke to you, on the date you request. We simply add a small 'private booking fee' (£40) and need a minimum of 2 people to book.
