ROCK CLIMBING

Rock climbing is a fun and rewarding activity suitable for most ages. The Eskdale Valley and Lake District is home to some great and easily accessible rock faces. Whether you are looking to try rock climbing for the first time or wish to improve and further your skills, we can offer coaching at all levels.

First Steps – Intro to Climbing

Half Day - Have a go at rock climbing on a friendly rock face under the guidance of a qualified and experienced instructor. Learn the basics of single pitch climbing including how to correctly put on a harness, learn to tie into the rope and belay safely, basic movements and techniques, as well as having lots of fun!

Full Day – Take rock climbing to the next level, as well as the above why not learn the essential skills to kick start your climbing as a hobby. A full climbing day can provide you skills such as moving efficiently on rock, use & care of equipment, safe belaying techniques, basic ropework & knots, route choice & interpreting guidebooks.

Next Steps – Moving Up

Transition Session - For individuals who wish to develop existing skills into a different area of climbing but need a helping hand to take the next step. Examples of transitions:

  • Indoor wall to the outdoor environment
  • Competent second to confident leader
  • Single pitch to multi pitch

We can help you develop the skills and confidence to go out and experience the joys of climbing big routes on mountain crags. Cover skills such as route selection and finding, using double ropes, organising and managing a belay stance, changing leaders on route and emergency procedures.

Learn to lead with one of our experienced mountain instructors, they will coach you through all aspects of lead climbing from selecting the right equipment and ‘racking’ your harness to anchor selection and use, efficient ropework & building safe and efficient belays.

Abseiling

Experience this adrenalin fuelled activity with West Lakes Adventure.

Leaning back over a ledge can be the ultimate challenge and test of nerve. Our qualified and experienced instructor will guide and encourage you backwards over the edge of the rock face, all the way to the bottom. This is a great way to build confidence and gain a feeling off self-belief, pride and sense of achievement.

Why not try abseiling as part of a multi-activity day and combine with another activity for a fun packed full day of adventure.
