Open Youth Climbing Sessions

Under 18 and looking to get into outdoor climbing? Climbing at an indoor wall and want to expand your experience?

One of the difficult things for young climbers is making the transition to becoming independant and experienced outdoor climbers. We offer a range of affordable regular sessions outdoors on real rock providing a pathway to a lifetime of climbing.

Unlike many other providers we only use active and experienced climbers who have a passion for the sport. We are also familiar with the climbing wall NICAS scheme, so if you participate in the sceme we can maximise your learning in the outdoor environment.

Which course is right for me?

We offer 3 types of climbing days, which cater for different experience levels. For those making their very first steps into outdoor climbing we have the Youth Outdoor Rock Climbing Introduction day. For those looking to advance their climbing skills and push their grades we have the Youth Outdoor Climbing Improvers day(dates coming soon). Finally, for those young climbers ready to make the step to becoming a truly independant climber we offer an Outdoor Lead Climbing Course(dates coming soon).
