Rock Climbing

Have you ever wanted scale a lakeland crag. Whether you just want to experience the thrill of climbing, to learn the skills to become an independant climber or scale a particular lakeland classic at High Points can help you achieve your dream. We can provide anything from half a days climbing on a valley climb to a full day ascending a multi pitch mountain route.

A Typical Session:

Meet the instructor close to the venue; here you will be issued with the appropriate clothing and equipment.  It will then usually be a short walk to crag, when you arrive at the crag you will be given a brief safety talk.  We teach you some basic skills for moving on rock then there is often a chance to practice with some, low-level scrambling to develop these skills.  Once everyone is harnessed you will be taught how to attach to the rope and how belay (the method of holding the rope through a mechanical friction device for your climbing partners).  Our instructor will guide you towards climbs that provide the right level of challenge for you. You will have an opportunity to try a variety of climbs which our instructor will choose to challenge everyone but also allow success.

What we provide: waterproof jacket, waterproof trousers personal and group safety equipment.
