Frequently asked questions

Is this suitable for me?

All you need is some basic fitness, be an independent (unsupervised) indoor climber and a willingness to give it a go! Nobody will force you to climb anything if you don't feel like it. I will always try and accommodate everyone but if unsure please drop me an email.

What do I need to bring?

For outdoor sessions you can bring your own equipment and you should have your own climbing shoes, harness and belay device. You can borrow a climbing helmet (but it will be worth getting your own). Hat and gloves plus warm layers can be useful plus food/drink. Please see the recommended kit list here.

Where do we meet?

We will meet at a nearby pub/cafe to the crag and go from there. Details will be sent out when you book.

What if it rains?

Given these events take place in Northern Britain, I will try and find an alternative venue but this may mean further travel. It's impossible to say what the weather might do until a day or so beforehand. If it's wet and rainy EVERYWHERE, we will go indoors and work on some movement skills.

What's not included?

Accommodation (if applicable), Food, Personal Insurance, Personal equipment, Transport.

How much is the course and how do I book?

For the outdoor introduction to rock day it is £95 per person for the day with discounts for multiple tickets. I tend to advertise these at short notice over the summer as the weather can be so variable. It's completely pointless trying to put something up weeks ahead as no doubt there'll be a summer storm coming across! However I will advertise at short notice on my Facebook Page which you can find here so do follow. Please ensure you have read the Terms and Conditions.

I've got some more general questions...

Can you run a climbing day privately for me and my group?

Absolutely - please see the Bespoke Courses page or just get in touch.

Is there an age restriction?

Under 18s are welcome so long as accompanied by the parent or guardian. However, this won't be suitable for small kids. There is no upper age limit. It's just more about fitness!
