Rock Climbing in the Lake District

Rock Climbing on Gimmer Crag in the Lake District

Rock Climbing in the Lake District Overview

The Lake District is home to thousands of fantastic rock climbs across the grade spectrum, from classic mountain routes to more esoteric gems hidden away on some of the less well travelled crags. If you are interested in arranging a day, or a few days rock climbing in the lake district then we can help. We’ve compiled a brief description of a number of the more popular climbs and crags in the region. It is by no means exhaustive but may provide some inspiration and a taste of what a day rock climbing in the Lake District could involve. Please follow the links below for more information:

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 1:1 ratio, with an additional fee of £20 per day for all extra participants: £180 for one day decreasing to £140 per day for five days. For more details, please see our pricing structure.

How to book?

Use the enquiry form on this page and we’ll get back to you with all of the details. We require a 30% deposit to secure bookings. If you would like any more information or have a specific question, please send us a message and we’ll be in touch.

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.
