Rock Climbing

Try rock climbing in the mighty Borrowdale Valley near Keswick in the Lake District. Challenge yourself on pristine cliffs with incredible views.

This is a great opportunity to find out why people love rock climbing so much. This is an introduction to the wonderful sport of rock climbing and is an amazing way to view the beauty of the Keswick area in the Lake District. 

Our friendly and knowledgable instructors will take you to easily accessible crags close to Keswick to offer you your first climbing experience. Once you've learnt the initial safety information and been kitted out in our up-to-date equipment, they will have you climbing multiple routes that suit your ability.

Coupled with an abseiling session where you will take control of your own ropes during your descent off the rock face, this can be an amazing day out where you will really challenge yourselves but leave with an immense sense of achievement.
