INTRO TO ROCK CLIMBING

INTRO TO ROCK COURSES FOR ALL THE FAMILY.

Our popular “Intro to Rock climbing” activity is a great way to experience Rock climbing in the great outdoors, you do not need any experience or need to be built like an athelete! this activity is a fantastic family half day out, there are no age limits, everybody from 6 to 90 can join in the fun, and if you find the Rock climbing bug bites, we have a full programme of instructional courses available.

WHATS INVOLVED?

We would usually meet in Elterwater, which is great if you are staying in Ambleside, Windermere or Grasmere, and after introductions we will take the 5 min drive into the stunning Langdale valley, from there you will be issued with a climbing helmet and harness, and head the short walk to one of the local crags, you will then receive some great tuition on the basic fundamentals of rock climbing, such as climbing technique and body movement, you will also learn how to safely belay each other (this is how to control the safety rope that is attached to the climber).

HOW LONG DOES THE ACTIVITY LAST?

This is usually a half day activity,  and you can choose AM (9.15am – 12.30pm) or PM (1.00pm – 4.15pm), We can also extend into a full day, or tag on another half day activity to fill the day, and all safety and technical equipment is included, you would need to bring suitable clothing and a good pair of trainers to climb in, and a drink and snack.

HOW GOOD ARE THE INSTRUCTORS?

All our instructors fully qualified and insured, they are all first aid trained and are great company out on the crags, Highpoint also hold an AALA licence, this allows us to take out children under 16 years old without parental supervision, so if you fancy a few hours of peace and quiet, why not let us keep the kids entertained, I can guarantee they will have a fantastic time.
