Outdoor Rock Climbing

Outdoor rock climbing is about giving you, the customer, the experience of being outdoors, at the crag. With stunning views around you, trying new things in a relaxed environment.

Our full and half day real rock climbing experiences are open to all regardless of experience.

Though some rock climbing experience would be beneficial, if you have never tried rock climbing before and just want to give it a go as a one-off and want to be surrounded by stunning landscapes then this is for you and if you enjoy it you could always book onto one of our learn to climb courses.

Private Rock Climbing Session

These sessions can be booked at any venue and is open to everyone over the age of 18

Outdoor sessions are priced at,

  • £140 for a full day.

  • £70 for a half day.

This is for 3 people additional people can be booked on for £10 per person with a maximum group of 6 .

Once you have decided where and when you want to climb, we'll meet you at the venue, set up the ropes for you and all you need to do is climb the rock. We operate at a number of venues around Yorkshire and the Peak district.

Rock Rigging Session

If your climbing is at a level where you’re ready to venture outside to the real rock and want to set up your own top ropes, then our Rock Rigging course is for you. We will teach you a number of rigging and belay techniques and discuss how to select the right route. We can also help you choose the correct equipment to buy and how to use it.

The course is normally a full day at Ilkley, Cow and Calf. We use Cow and Calf as our main venue because it offers easy access and it is one of the best places in the area to learn.

However private sessions can be booked almost anywhere around West Yorkshire and the Peak District and cost £140 for a full day for up to 3 people.
