Summer Mountain Courses

Learn new mountain skills, try scrambling or go rock climbing!

All of our summer courses are tailored specifically to meet your aspirations and are designed on an individual basis. By keeping things small and personal you’ll really get to know and trust your instructor and get the most from your time in the mountains.

A good quality mountain day requires a whole host of skills – especially when looking after others. Pick and choose from the following, or let us know if there is a specific element you wish to work on.

  • Basic rope work

  • Group management
  • Navigation
  • Route planning

Mountaineering & Scrambling

If you are already a hill walker and are keen to step it up, our mountaineering & scrambling courses will be just the job. You will venture onto steeper ground, ridges and easy scrambles. During the course you will have a chance to perfect your mountain awareness, basic rope work and pick up some top tips to increase your knowledge of the mountain environment.

Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is truly fantastic and will take you into some incredible places in the UK.
