GUIDED ROCK CLIMBING

If you’re visiting the South West and want to try out the best rock climbing routes, then a guided rock climbing day is for you. Whether you’ve climbed before or not, this is an easy way to get some rock miles in. On our guided rock climbing days, the maximum instructor to client ratio is 1:3, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to climb some classic multi-pitch routes, have fun and learn new skills along the way.

You can book onto our guided days out at Avon Gorge in Bristol, and the Wye Valley in South Wales, where you will climb on great crags such as Wintour’s Leap, Shorn Cliff and Wynd Cliff. These rock climbing cliffs are the closest to London, and with Bristol just on the doorstep, you can also sample some West Country culture and nightlife.

We also run guided rock climbing days all over the UK, climbing Classic Rock or Hard Rock routes, mega classics or fun long climbs – just get in touch to arrange a great rock climbing day out to remember!

ROCK CLIMBING TESTIMONIALS 

What an epic day. Dave gave us an amazing day on Wintours leap. We covered more than I could have hoped. Dave understood exactly what our objectives of the day were, excellent value for money. Dave was the most professional, and clearly knew his stuff.

Mr W Portal

I just wanted to add that the quality of instruction was actually more than excellent! I learned loads of things that were very empowering and challenging, while always feeling very safe and in a friendly atmosphere. I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed my day. Many thanks to Dave!

Ms V Giudici

Had an amazing time over two days climbing with Dave and Robyn. Both were super knowledgable and the teaching was faultless. Managed to cram in a lot over the 2 days days, trad, sport, multi pitch, you name it. Everything was keep upbeat even when the odd bits of weather rolled in. Would definitely recommend for a great experience!

Mr A Merchant

Thank you Dave for organizing a day of up-skilling and trad climbing with a super lovely and professional mountain guide Alec. I learned so much and gained my confidence and can say that I look forward to taking what I have gained from this experience with me moving forward. Thanks also for excellent communication and response.

Mr A Merchant

Absolutely brilliant course and exceptional instruction. Did a 2 day multi-pitch/trad course. Learnt a multitude of skills whilst also getting in some pretty awesome climbing – not only covered the obvious core skills such as placing protection and good rope-work, but explored and practiced the mental techniques to cope with stress on routes in a very controlled/safe way.

Richard A

learnt an absolute tonne in one day with Dave doing trad leading, and I now feel confident to climb outdoors by myself. He realised that I wanted to whizz through everything and tailored for that by teaching me all he could in such a short period of time. Brilliant!

B Collis

We had the best time climbing with Robyn! She was super organised and very knowledgable. We climbed in 2 spots. Robyn was able to tailor our session to us – we have done a fair bit of bouldering before but not a great deal of roped climbing. We got so much out of it, it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend it!

E Richards

The best rock climbing instruction I’ve ever had. Extremely clear and engaging.

GUIDED ROCK CLIMBING LOCATIONS

It’s difficult to put into words how good Avon Gorge really is. Only minutes away from the city centre, it has hundreds of great routes to choose from, including the Hard Rock route Malbogies, and the Classic Rock Piton Route. The Suspension Bridge Buttress is a favorite place to climb for most, being just underneath the famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. With guaranteed awesome views, it is a truly memorable Bristol experience. Grades at Avon Gorge vary from Mod to E7, and nearly all involve multi-pitch rock climbing.

You can easily travel to Bristol by bus, train or plane, and with many places to stay and great night life, it makes an ideal weekend break.

Come rock climbing in Avon Gorge!

The Wye Valley has many amazing cliffs to its name and all of them live up to their reputation.

Wintour’s Leap is a grand day out, with huge multi-pitch rock climbing routes and stunning views down the river. Shorn Cliff has a superb selection of single pitch routes; you are usually dancing your way up pocketed limestone to good tree anchors. Symonds Yat is famous for the river rapids and a free standing pinnacle, of which an ascent is a must. I love Symonds Yat for an adventure day, abseiling in and running around bagging routes of all grades. It’s one of those places that the more you get to know it the better it becomes…trust me, I’ve climbed there a lot. Finally, Wynd Cliff has both sport and traditional climbing, making it a great place to dabble in a bit of both. It’s also a real sun trap, making it great for those days in January where everywhere else is too cold.

The Wye Valley is a breathtaking place to be; great limestone rock climbing with views over the River Wye, super pubs and beautiful wildlife.

Dave Talbot – Adventure Events is based in the South West, and I have grown up on the routes around this area. Travelling down to Cornwall and climbing at Sennen or Bosigran over a long weekend has left many a fond memory. You can turn up the screws as well and jump on some esoteric classics like Skeleton Ridge, which are sure to give you an adventurous day out. If you want to climb on some of the best multi-pitch rock climbing cliffs in the UK, while enjoying seaside towns and eating ice cream then the South West is for you.

Get in touch and I can give you some ideas of the best routes to get on, as well as all the local knowledge to go with it.

It might be the case that there is a route that you’ve always wanted to do in Snowdonia, and a fun road trip up there is just the ticket for your weekend away. The Lake District might be calling your name, or the gritstone of the Peak District which has too much draw to miss out on.

Either way, get in touch if you want to go on a multi-pitch rock climbing adventure to remember.

One person – £190 per day
Two people – £110 per person, per day
Three people – £90 per person, per day

One of the best guided rock climbing days out is the VS challenge, which includes five multi-pitch routes in one day at Avon Gorge in Bristol. It is a great day out; find out more in this article I wrote about it.
