Climb off the indoor wall and feel the fresh wind of the Welsh mountainside as I teach you the skills of rock climbing. Grip the rugged rocks of Snowdonia, where the mountains are mixed with ancient myth and legend.

Join me on this rock climbing course for beginners, and learn the art of mastering the mountains. I will cover how to use climbing equipment (racks and ropes) and how to tie knots. Learn how to belay a climber and set up your own top or bottom rope system.

I will also cover how to abseil and the different movements involved, as well as teaching about the grades, jargon busting and using a guide book.

This is very much a hands on approach to learning, so expect plenty of time navigating the rocks on this 2-day course.

Don’t worry about the equipment as I provide the harnesses, helmets and climbing shoes.

Because this is a beginners course, it is great for novice individuals but also families and groups.

Reserve your place in the Welsh mountainside and learn the essentials of rock climbing on this 2-day course.



About the guide

guide profile img

I hold a Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (MIC). I am fully qualified to guide and instruct all aspects of mountaineering and climbing in the UK throughout the year. Also, I am a full member of the Mountain Training Association (MTA) and the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI).

I love climbing and this passion has taken me all over the world, even to the summit of Mount Everest. I have also climbed in the Andes, as well as in the Alps, Norway and Canada. I reached the summit of Mount Everest on May 2001, as a member of the RAF Mountain Rescue Service Everest North Ridge expedition.

I first started mountaineering in Scotland with the RAF Mountain Rescue Service, over 20 years ago. Since then, I haven't stopped climbing and exploring new mountains in the UK and abroad. I have been a RAF Mountain Rescue Team Leader and also the Chief Instructor for 5 years. I have also climbed all the Munros, the Scottish peaks above 3000 feet.

I love climbing around North Wales and the rest of the UK. We have so many amazing climbing and scrambling spots to discover in this area! I enjoy taking my clients there for rock climbing, scrambling and mountain skills courses or for a guided day out.

We can set up a program according to your level and wishes. Contact me and we can start planning your next mountain adventure right away!
