What You will do & learn


  • The emphasis will be on having FUN! 
    This is critical for your younger kids to enjoy the experience, coming away with a positive experience and wanting more!

  • We will normally aim to maximize climbing time, instead of standing around teaching lots of skills. That said we'll teach the basics of tying in and belaying if it makes sense for your family. 

  • We often have parents who want to learn how to take their children outdoors safely, which is something we can teach; in fact, we have a whole 2-day course on this!

  • We will pick the best climbing area based on your family/group.

  • For most families with younger kids, this will mean going to a short single pitch crag with very easy climbs. For families from an adventurous outdoor background with Kids who love an adventure then perhaps we'll go into the mountains and do an easy roped scramble together. 


Our Climbing courses are mostly in Snowdonia National Park. We'll meet in Llanberis and normally go to Union Rock, Lion rock or the Ogwen Valley for this course.
