Our intro to rock course, aimed at people who wish to try climbing for the first time or to brush up on some skills that they already have but feel a little rusty.

We understand that getting a quality nights sleep and being able to dry your equipment can make all the difference to the comfort and enjoyment of your trip. So we have used some of the local B&B's due to the fact they provide what we need well. The rooms are priced on a sharing basis, but we can also arrange private rooms and/or different accommodation if you wish.
