Primarily designed for indoor climbers who fancy a "taste of real rock", our guided days will take you on a journey up some of the country's most iconic crags and climbs. Working in small ratios, our experienced guides will deliver a personal climbing day, tailored to your experience, ambition and desires. Whether you want to second them to understand gear placements better, just fancy a relaxed day of climbing at an unfamiliar venue or are eyeing up a specific route, your guide will be your competent climbing friend for the day.

You should be a competent top-rope climber and be able to pass a centre style belay test without issues. It is a bonus if you have lead climbed indoors before, but this is not necessary.
What can you expect?
Climb some of Britain's most iconic crags. Experience the freedom and thrill of outdoor climbing. Spend an unforgettable day climbing with a competent and knowledgeable guide.
After meeting up and getting to know you a bit your instructor will decide on the best venue to head to given your experience, the weather and other factors on the day. Usually they will have a few venues in mind which allows for the day to, either stay in one place or explore the area a bit more. Let your instructor know what you'd like to achieve and get out of the day, so they can take this into account.
Once at the venue your instructor will initially want to see your personal climbing skills and most likely rig the first climb from above. Depending on their assessment of you, the day then may continue in this fashion or they may choose to lead climbs for you to second, creating the experience of climbing with an experienced climber on real rock. Either way we will ensure you take away a bucket load of new knowledge and experience while tackling some of the most iconic "bits of rock" this country has to offer.
If you have a particular route in mind that you would like to try and conquer just let your guide know and they will do their best to accommodate your wishes. We trust our instructors to know their limits and respect them. As a result your instructor is free to choose whether they lead climb a route for you to second or whether they "play it safe" and rig a toprope system for a given route.
We currently do not offer multi-pitch climbing days and are happy to give you our recommendations for other guides and companies who do.
What do you need to bring?
As we will be exposed to the weather it is essential that you are prepared for this. We issue minimum kit lists when you book, and be prepared for a minimum of warm layers, waterproofs and sturdy shoes.
We supply ropes, helmets and other miscellaneous safety items as we see fit considering the venues. We would expect you to have your own harness, belay device and climbing shoes.
