Counting down the days to my rock climbing workshops this weekend! On Saturday 20th April I’m running an intro to rock session, where we’ll be finding out that natural rock is pretty different to the climbing wall, with the good news being that it is often much less steep, and the even better news being that you can use any hold you can find!Then on Sunday 21st April we’ll be covering all the basics to get you started on your journey to being an outdoor ‘trad’ climber.

Suitable for all levels of ability and experience! More details on www.lakesclimber.co.uk. It may even be dry… ... See MoreSee Less
