Description

Lying along the banks of the Wye River in south-central England, the Wye Valley is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and boasts some excellent rock climbing opportunities.

After meeting up Symonds Yat, a picturesque little village in the Forest of Dean, we will go over our plans for the day before heading out onto the rocks.

Our climbing will take place on the  walls of the limestone gorge that surrounds the river. At various points on the trip, we will enjoy stunning views of the dense native woodlands that surrounds us.

There are a range of routes up which we may climb. Where we head depends on your previous experience, although both novice and advanced climbers are certain to find routes that they love here.

Each day will be split into two climbing periods, separated by lunch. The length of each part of our day will depend on what we decide to do.

Among the topics that we can go over as we climb are belaying (depending on experience), equipment selection, climbing techniques and etiquette, bouldering, abseiling and route selection with a guide book.

In the evening, we can unwind in the lovely little town of Symonds Yat and eat some dinner (and have a pint) at the pub (not included in the trip price). On or off the rocks, we’ll be having a great time!

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this fun and scenic 2-day rock climbing experience and course in the stunning beauty of the Wye Valley!
