Climbing on the outcrops, sea cliffs and mountains crags of Britain is as good as rock climbing gets. If you’d like to acquire the traditional climbing skills to get out cragging on your own, I’m here to help. Whether you’re just starting out or seeking to improve your existing skills, I can put together a fun, tailor-made climbing course, to suit any level of ability and experience.
If you’d simply like to climb some beautiful routes in amazing places, that’s possible too. Guided climbing days can be arranged on request throughout the spring, summer and autumn.
Guided climbing in Snowdonia
Come and enjoy a grand day’s climbing in the mountains of Snowdonia (Eryri). There’s a huge choice of stuff to climb, with something for all tastes and all levels of climbing ability.
North Wales is my home and I know the area’s crags and mountains really well. I’m good at choosing the right climbs to suit someone’s ability and aspirations. I also know where to find dry rock on showery days, cool rock on hot days and quiet climbs on the busier weekends. If there’s a specific route you’ve always wanted to do, let me know and if it’s at all possible we’ll climb it.
How does a day’s guided climbing work?
Let me know the date(s) you’re interested in and I’ll get straight back to you with my availability. The cost for a day’s climbing is £240 for one person, or £265 for two people. Just bring your rock shoes, suitable clothing for the day’s weather (I’ll let you know the what to expect) and some tasty lunch. All technical climbing equipment is provided, including a harness and helmet if you don’t have your own.
We’d normally meet at 8.30am in the valley where our climbs for the day are located. Or if you’re accommodation is in the Llanberis area, I’ll pick you up. We’d climb all day, aiming to be back in valley before 5pm. There’s flexibility to this, just ask.

If you already have a good idea of what training you’re after, just go ahead and book a day or more with me. With the time you have available, I’d cover as many useful skills as possible to help move your climbing along. It’s as simple as that.
If you’re new to traditional climbing, or you’re looking to improve your technical skills but unsure what area training would be most beneficial, just get in touch for a no-obligation chat (email or phone). I’ll then be able to offer suggestions. Some examples of stuff I can offer…

– learn to lead traditional climbs

You can book anything from a single day’s instruction to a week-long course. This can be for yourself, with a friend or for a group.
