Rock Climbing


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.

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 more...

Being below the impressive flanks of Weatherlam is an impressive sight. We run our climbing from the slate-mine, in the bedrock above the parking spot. This venues does involve a steep walk and the climbing is quite challenging more...

This venue can also be used for abseiling and easy ghyll scrambling. 

For those who have already got some experience perhaps indoors and would like to explore the sport further and higher more...

Climb + Abseil


Climbing and Abseiling together is a great option for a longer experience.

Both activites are based from the same location, which means maximum time outdoors having fun. Doing the two sessions together adds about an extra hour to the session and gives you a chance to get to grips  moving confidently  on the rock.
