Our Climbing courses are mostly in Snowdonia National Park. We'll usually meet in a cafe and have a quick introduction over a cuppa, and decide on where to go. We'll pick the most suitable location based on you, the objectives and the weather. If the weather is good it's nice to head to a crag in the mountains, if the forecast is looking bad then we'll often seek dry rock at Tremadog, the Molwyns or Holyhead.
