During the course we may visit some of these places: Cornwall, Devon, Pembroke, North Wales, The Peak District, North Devon, Dorset, Old Man of Hoy and The Lakes. Wherever we are the routes and crags will be handpicked for you to lead, be coached or guided on.

This course is not only a magnificent way to get to see the diversity of rock climbing in the UK but also a way to rapidly improve your rock climbing over a month. The accommodation will be a mix of camping and bunkhouses, and the transport will be provided by us. There are no fixed plans for the route, just an open road, a weather forecast and a load of guidebooks and three-star routes that are calling us.
