What Will You Do
We start by travelling out to the crag where we will teach you the fundamentals of climbing safety. Our guides will literally ‘show you the ropes’, teach you some basic knots, climbing techniques and how to safely belay another climber.
We have over 50 routes to choose from, covering all levels of skill and experience. Once you understand the safety aspects of climbing we will suggest which routes would be most appropriate for you. Our guides will instruct you in top rope climbing before progressing to lead climbing.
If you are an experienced climber, our guides will ask you to demonstrate your experience before allowing you to lead climb.

Help us to become 100% single use plastic free company!
We try to avoid plastic as much as possible, that is why we encourage you to bring your own refillable bottle.
We have water refillable station at our office where you can fill up your bottle. If you don’t have one we sell the 0,75 L Green Discovery aluminium bottles at our sales office. At the moment we will still need to use plastic bottles in some of our tours but we hope to reduce it as much as possible. Together with The Green Discovery Sustainability Fund we are working on installing water filters in all the villages we are visiting and we hope in the future we will not need to use plastic bottles anymore.
