Rock Climbing Courses

Rock Climbing Courses

 Our Courses are run throughout the year in both Snowdonia in North Wales and at Gower & Pembrokeshire S.Wales. These are both great sea cliif & mountain areas that we know really well to help choose course routes and terrain that matches your ability and aspirations.

The climbing instruction in North Wales is based close to the towns of Betws-y-Coed and Llanberis in the Snowdonia National Park. This is a brilliant mountain area with a variety of climbing that is unrivalled in Britain- from long classic mountain routes in the Llanberis Pass and Ogwen Valley to road side crags at Tremadog. At South Wales we operate at Gower and Pembroke, offering unrivalled sea cliffs of all sizes and grades for varying abilities.
