2-day Intro to multi-pitch trad climbing in the Snowdonia National Park, Wales

Join James, an AMI/MIA-certified mountain guide, for this fun, informative and exciting 2-day introductory course into multi-pitch climbing in beautiful Snowdonia National Park. Learn new skills and put them to the test as we go.


2 Days

May - Oct




* Enjoy gorgeous views out over Snowdonia National Park.

* Learn loads of useful and necessary multi-pitch clibming skills.

* Make several stunning ascents as we go.


Situated in northwestern Wales, Snowdonia National Park is home to some of the best rock climbing in the United Kingdom and the world!

Spending a couple of days out here on the rocks is one of the best ways to learn multi-pitch trad climbing, which is exactly what we will do!

Over the course of our two days together, we will combine learning exercises with some independent climbs, in order to practice exactly what we are learning.

On that note, expect to go over the following over the course of our time together:

  • Anchors: building, placement, removal, selection, attachment and equalization

  • Equipment use

  • Technical Skills, such as tying knots, belaying as leader and as second and lowering

  • Using the guide book to find routes and selecting routes once on the rocks

  • Personal abseiling

  • Basic problem solving

  • The principals of leading and actual trad leading, if we get that far

Learning all of this will, of course, be combined with making several climbs up some of the park’s many stunningly scenic routes. There is no better reward for learning than applying those skills to get great views.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this excellent multi-pitch rock climbing course in stunning Snowdonia National Park!

Mountain Leader

My Name is James Monypenny. I have been a passionate rock climber for 15 years, and I have been working as a professional, qualified Rock Climbing and Mountaineering Instructor and Mountain Leader for 12 years.

I have climbed new routes on unclimbed peaks all over the world, in exciting places such as Patagonia, Peru, Kyrgyzstan, China, Bolivia, Pakistan, India, Tajikistan and Nepal, but the cliffs and mountains of Snowdonia, in Wales, remain the most special to me, as I am lucky enough to call them home.

I guide multi-pitch classic Snowdonia climbs, classic roped scrambles, introduction to sea cliff climbing, and other great courses and tours for beginners and experienced climbers.

I look forward to giving you an amazing rock climbing experience in Wales!

What people are saying about James



This was our first outdoor climbing experience and we loved it. We can highly recommend James who planned a full day of climbing around our wishes. Thank you James for this unforgettable day.



James was excellent. Planned the day really well. He offered very helpful advice and is an awesome guy to spend a day climbing with.



I had an amazing 2 days spent with James climbing. I was new to climbing and have now fallen in love with the sport thanks to James’ incredible teaching and adventures. James spent time getting to know me which allowed him to cater the course to what I wanted to achieve. The days flew by way too quickly as I was having too much fun. I will definitely be booking in some dates soon for some more adventuring and climbing. Thank you James :-) and I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I know.



Sadly we had to cancel due to scheduling issues on my end. I spoke with James and we are going to try again next year some time. Very happy with all the services.



James was great as a guide. Despite the varying weather, he was able to find good locations for climbing, and tailored to our skill levels. We had great climbs in Snowdon, Anglesey.
