North Wales is blessed with some of the best Sea Cliff Climbing in the UK. The name Gogarth can simultaneously spread fear and excitement into a climber. If you want a set of skills to tame these giant sea cliffs then our sea cliff climbing course is ideal.

During this course we will climb wherever is appropriate for you, whilst VS climbers will get more out of this course, there are also sea cliffs dotted around that will allow anyone to experience and enjoy Wales’ most dramatic coastline. So whether its the great sea cliffs of Gogarth, the Lleyn Peninsular or The Great Ormes. This course will open a whole new world of climbing possibilities to you.
