Rock Climbing

Get on the real rock faces of Cumbria

Rock Climbing is a great challenge. Ascending near vertical rock faces with your hands and the rubber of your shoes, protected by rope and harness. It’s challenging and exhilarating but at the same time very satisfying.

Your abilities will quickly improve and you will be climbing routes you wouldn’t have been able to at the start of the session.

Our regular venues are listed below, but we also climb near Ingleton and in the Langdale Valley.

Rock Climbing options:

Rock Climbing in South Lakes

This site looks like nothing from the carpark, but as you approach it an impressive slab of rock appears through the trees. As you climb up the rock, the view opens up to show the vast seascape of Morcamebe Bay. 

The climbing here is challenging but friendly and a great place to get the feel for climbing, on real rock. It is also possible to do climbing and abseiling combined from this venue. 

Rock Climbing near Coniston

Meeing below the impressive flanks of Weathelam is an impressive sight. We run our climbing on the slate mine in the bedrock above the parking spot. This venues does involve a steep walk and the climbing is quite challenging.

This venue can also be used for abseilng and easy ghyll scrabling.
