Rock Climbing

Rock Climbing is one of our most popular activities. We use local crags which are best suited to beginners and intermediates and on the rare occasion that it rains, we have access to the Keswick indoor climbing wall.

You will be fitted with the necessary safety equipment and introduced to techniques that allow you to reach the top of the climb. In addition, you may be taught the basic rope work skills to allow you to safely tie in and belay a partner; a wonderful exercise in mutual trust. Needless to say, all of this happens under the watchful eye of your Instructor.

Where to Meet?

Meet at Newlands Adventure Centre for this activity.
Stair, Keswick CA12 5UF
