We run two types of courses, Scheduled and Bespoke

Our Scheduled courses are on set dates, at set venues and are payable via Paypal.  Just select the desired option from the drop down menu, make the payment and then complete a booking form (you'll be directed to the form on completion of the payment).   Scheduled courses are easy to book onto, a great way to meet likeminded people and usually cheaper than a bespoke course.

In addition to our scheduled courses we can put together a course to your requirements. 

Benefits of a Bespoke course; 

Pick a date and venue to suit you (depending on availability and suitability of venue),  ability to structure the course content to meet your needs, increase or decrease the length of the course. e.g. Learn to Lead 'Trad' over 3 days instead of two, arrange for 1:1 private instruction, organise a course specifically for you and a partner/group of friends.

To book a Bespoke course you'll need to contact us either by phone or email to discuss your needs but as a guide the Bespoke course prices are listed below.

Avon Gorge Climbing Experience

If you've ever travelled into Bristol along the A4 Portway you cant have failed to notice the 200ft cliffs and the Suspension Bridge.   If  you've looked up and thought you'd like to climb the entire height, even just once, then we can make it happen for you.   We'll provide all the kit and instruction that you'll need and then lead you all the way to the top - and if you've been good then we'll buy you an ice cream when we finish.

Depending on your experience we can ascend via a variety of routes each with different levels of difficulty and we can spend half a day completing our route or can extend the experience to take up a whole day with some warm up climbs and additional instruction if required. 

We've had clients achieve this as a charity fundraising challenge before with the addition of a 200ft abseil to get back down (after the ice cream obviously!). 

Bespoke Half Day Cost: £80 for up to 2 people   Max ratio 1:2

Bespoke Full Day Cost: £150 for up to 2 people   Max ratio 1:2

Experience required - None although if you want to try the more challenging routes then some indoor/outdoor climbing experience would be required.

Learn to Lead Sport

Sport Climbing is rock climbing on preplaced (usually) solid protection which allows the climber to concentrate on the physical and mental demands of the climb.  Whilst simpler and safer than Trad climbing there are still risks and technical elements involved.  On our Sport climbing course you will learn you what you need to stay safe whilst receiving coaching in movement techniques and tactics that will help you reach your climbing goals.

Bespoke Cost per day:

1:1 £150  1:2 £75pp    1:4  £65pp          Max ratio 1:4

Experience required - Some indoor/outdoor experience.


Learn to Lead Trad

Traditional or 'Trad' climbing is a massively and wonderfully varied sport and the ability to 'Trad' climb opens up a limitless supply of adventures.    With so much choice and variety in rock type, cliff size, location, exposure, difficulty, seriousness, ease and amount of protection, ease of access and escape, equipment required, physical and mental demands, techniques and tactics involved a climber can tailor their 'Trad' climbing to their preferences -  bold face climbing, long easy mountain routes, well protected cracks, challenging sea cliffs..... the opportunities are endless. 

Our Learn to Lead Trad courses are here to give you a solid grounding in the fundamental techniques and elements of the sport that will allow you to head off on your own adventures safely and confidently.

Improvised Rescue/Problem Solving

Climbing and mountaineering has always had a tradition of  'you got yourself into it -now  you get yourself out'     With this course we like to focus not just on the 'getting out' but also 'the don't get into it'.

We'll look at common problems that can occur which whilst not life threatening can be annoying and time consuming (stuck gear, jammed screw gates) .  Other slightly more serious or complicated situations can be covered like 2nds climbing past runners or unable to climb a section of the route before moving onto serious and complex situations such as escaping the system or dealing with an unconscious climber depending on time and client needs.

Our aim is to provide you with a  logical set of 'tools' and systems that will enable you to deal with a variety of situations whilst highlighting ways of avoiding the problems in the 1st place.

These courses are usually run in the Avon Gorge, Wye Valley, Peak District, Dartmoor, South Devon and South Wales.
