UK Rock Climbing Courses
We run our uk rock climbing courses in the Lake District, North Wales, Yorkshire and the Peak District. All courses are designed to be progressive, running at levels 1, 2 and 3 in line with our alpine climbing courses – so if you want to learn how to climb outdoors, or improve your trad climbing skills or technique, we provide expert training for all levels of experience. If you need some advice on the best course for you, just get in touch for a chat with one of our senior guides.
We offer scheduled dates for a few of our popular courses (eg Alpine training weekends), but the majority of our UK rock climbing courses are fully bespoke and tailored to your own requirements at the dates of your choice – just get in touch with your group size and requirements and we will create an itinerary for you. Each course is carefully designed to blend skills training into real climbing days, so that you build experience and learn how to operate independently, whilst enjoying plenty of great climbing.

Traditional leader protected rock climbing – known as ‘trad climbing’ – is the most widespread form of rock climbing in the UK, meaning that the UK has the biggest variety of traditional rock climbing anywhere in Europe. Therefore, learning how to trad climb or improving your trad leading skills, is an essential part of becoming an experienced all round rock climber in the Uk.
Trad climbing opens up a whole new world of adventure and having good trad leading skills is also essential if you want to progress further in alpine climbing and winter climbing too.
