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.
