If you feel ready to take your first steps into traditional lead climbing, or have been a regular leader on easier climbs for a while, then this is the course for you. Our team of highly skilled and experienced staff will spend time getting to know you, and really get to grips with where your climbing is at, and then look at how to take it to the next level. With such a complex and diverse activity, the pathway to improvement is often difficult to see, which is where we come in. Our staff team have all been climbing for many years, and have faced the same hurdles themselves, and helped many other folks overcome them too.

With such a wealth of world class rock climbing on our doorstep, we can really help you develop as an independent lead climber, and fast ! The massive variety of rock types, styles, and types of climbing, all within a 45-minute drive of the centre, means we can cover masses of ground in five days. This will give you the opportunity to get the absolute maximum out of your time with us, and really help you progress. The geographical location is also a massive plus, as the centre really is at the heart of Snowdonia, so we have easy access to all the famous mountain venues for times when it is less so. It is quite rare that there isn't some dry rock to climb in this area somewhere. Even when it does rain we have our own facilities on site to use to coach trad climbing including a fantastic new climbing wall.
