The Lake District, Cumbria and the Eden valley all offer a number of great opportunities for climbing. You can choose from a number of limestone crags across the region or take on the volcanic rock of Borrowdale or some of the mountain crags of the Ullswater Valley, even head indoors. There are many opportunities and one of our instructors can coach and lead you through the skills of belaying safely or coach you in movement on the rock.

The skill needed is minimal at the start but the adventure and trust is high and with a few minutes instruction you can grown in confidence and make that ascent.

Climbing is suitable for most, but sometimes accessing the sites can involve a bit of scrambling over rocks or a bit of a steep climb. We’ve had as young a 6 years old giving it a go.
