Quality Guiding & Instruction

 

Based in Snowdonia North Wales, we offer bespoke climbing and mountaineering courses. 

Rock Climbing

Whether you are looking for an Introduction to Climbing Outside or want to Learn to Lead Climb we can help you develop your skills as a rock climber.  Perhaps you just want to be guided up some of those classic British routes or have a taste of climbing on a sea cliff. There are many reasons why you might want to take your climbing a step further and we can help you with this.


Please get in contact so we can personalise a course for you. 

Scrambling

Get to grips with some of Snowdonias beautiful scrambling routes. Snowdonia has plenty to offer from simple scrambles on ridges to steeper more complex ones. Classic ridges like Crib Goch require a steady head and plenty of previous mountain walking experience.  We can help you get to grips with all the skills required to get out on easy unroped scrambles or help with the ropework required for trickier adventures on grade II and III scrambles such as Cnefion Arete. 


Please get in contact so we can personalise a course for you. 

Navigation

Navigation is a key skill for anyone spending lots of time in the mountains. Whether you need a refresher or to start from the beginning we can provide top quality teaching to help make sure you don't find yourself 'geographically' challenged in the mountains again!


Please get in contact so we can personalise a course for you. 

 


Winter Climbing 

Ice climbing, mixed climbing or both. I can progress your rock climbing into winter climbing, help you become an independent winter climber or take you up some classic Scottish or Welsh winter climbs.

 

Please get in contact so we can personalise a course for you. 

Winter Skills & Mountaineering
