Coaching and Classes

Climbing is one of the fastest growing activities in the UK and if you come and have a go you'll soon see why. It is a full body work out, combining the need for mental focus and problem solving (it's been called playing chess on a vertical board) - and it's extremely sociable.

Our instructors are expert climbers and they have a well-deserved reputation for coaching too. 



Suitable for absolute beginners or anyone wanting to improve technique with the support of an experienced female climbing coach.  

More and more women are climbing - come along and find out why.

Improve climbing technique, learn rope skills, build confidence and make friends.

 Don't just take our word for it, here's what BBC Sport said in 2015.

We have indoor climbing courses for all levels of experience, from taster courses to lead climbing. We can take you outside to some of the best mountains in Scotland. We can even help you make a career out of climbing.

Help your children aim high. Kids love to climb, and they can start from age 4 years. The benefits aren't just about fitness, climbing needs creative thinking and problem solving, perseverance and concentration, safety awareness and responsibility and the physical skills of strength and body awareness.

Watch your kids blossom and gain confidence and competence as they have a huge amount of fun with our friendly, qualified instructors.



We run Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) courses and assessments at levels one, two and three. These qualifications are internationally recognised and are required for working at height professionally in many industries.

We want as many people as possible to experience climbing, so we put a lot of energy into working with different education and community groups – youth groups, schools, clubs, Cubs, Brownies and the like. We welcome all groups as long as they meet the age and height requirements for specific activities. You could do a one-off activity such as a climbing taster or Aerial Assault; or follow the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS) or Climbing Wall Award. As well as being thrilling for all concerned, these activities can also help attract new members to your group.

Our seasonal holiday camp is run by experienced leaders to help make the most of every child's day. Activities vary but kids will have huge fun taking part in games, sports, craft and drama. Keep the kids active and entertained and give yourself some peace of mind during the holidays.
