What is included in the course fee?
The course fee includes use of all equipment including rock shoes for climbing in. You will need to bring appropriate clothing and approach shoes or boots for getting to the base of climbs. Travel, accommodation and food is not included. The instructor will meet you at the beginning of each day at a suitable place near the day's chosen venue.
Where should I stay? Venues and Accommodation?
For those wishing to base themselves in the North Lakes and enjoy some luxury, peace and quiet after a day of climbing, the 4 Star Borrowdale Gates Hotel is a hidden gem, nestled in the stunning Borrowdale valley, with a good choice of climbing sites to explore close by.
It is best to discuss where you plan to stay with Mandy so that she can check it is near enough to suitable climbing venues. In the Lake District, Scotland and North Wales there are a number of different options to suit all tastes. Tourist information offices can recommend accommodation from Hotel, B & B to self catering apartments and cottages, Youth Hostels, campsites and bunkhouses.
Do you Travel to Other Parts of the Country?
The main area we work in is the Lake District but may be able to run courses in other parts of the Country North Wales is also an excellent venue to run rock climbing and scrambling courses and has numerous quality venues for all activities. If you want to base yourselves in the Peak District we can arrange courses there, mainly on single pitch, grit-stone crags. Scotland offers possibilities for longer 'Alpine style' scrambles and climbs. For those looking to experience some sea cliff climbing adventures, Anglesey, Pembroke, Devon and Cornwall are all possible.
