Rock Climbing in the Lake District

Rock Climbing in the Lake District

Rock Climbing in the Lake District Overview

The Lake District is home to literally thousands of fantastic rock climbs across the grade spectrum, from classic multi-pitch routes on our mountain crags to cutting edge sport climbs, not to mention a wealth of high-quality bouldering. With over 25 years of experience climbing in the Lakes, our knowledge of the climbs and crags is second to none. So if you are interested in arranging a day, or a few days of rock climbing in the lake district, then please get in touch.

All of our guided rock climbing is bespoke and tailored to your experience and aspirations, however, to give you an idea of what we offer, some of the most famous climbs and crags that we regularly guide people on include: Napes Needle; Tophet Wall; Scafell and Pillar Rock. If you are planning a trip to the Lakes, the Lake District National Park Authority website has lots of useful information about the area.

Do I need any previous experience?

Some previous multi-pitch climbing experience is desirable but not essential. Maybe you have a particular climb on your ‘bucket list’ that you’ve always wanted to do? Or, perhaps you are just curious to explore some of the great crags in the region? We will advise you on the level of ability required to tackle some of the great climbs in the Lakes and can offer training and coaching to help you get there. We strive to offer flexible, tailored instruction specific to your goals.

How many can participate?

Guided Rock Climbing works well on a 1:1 or 1:2 basis (instructor to participant) and can be booked from one day to a week in duration.

How much will it cost?

Our pricing structure is based on a sliding scale with a reduced daily fee for every additional day booked. If you would like to reserve a contingency day around your preferred date/s in order to pick the best weather and conditions for your course or activity we may be able to arrange this for an additional fee. For more details, please see our pricing structure.

How to book?

Please get in touch using the enquiry form on this page and we’ll get back to you with all of the details and a booking form for you to complete. We require a 30% deposit to secure bookings and full payment prior to your course or activity commencing. If you would like any more information or have a specific question, please use the contact form in the menu at the top of the page.

What do I need to bring with me?

We will provide all of the technical climbing equipment, including a helmet and harness if required. If you have any of your own equipment that you would like to use, we will encourage you to use it as long as it’s suitable. It’s always good to use your own equipment as it will be familiar to you, and will help you to feel more comfortable. However, you will need to provide some personal items including a rucksack, waterproofs, suitable footwear, and a packed lunch.
