Outdoor Climbing

Looking to try something new or are you an experienced climber looking for some coaching to give you the edge? We tailor all our courses to your specific requirements to give you the best experience and value for money.

Despite having one of the best climbing walls in the world to climb in, the Eden Rock staff are also keen outdoor enthusiasts. Through the summer months we additionally offer outdoor climbing packages on real rock.

Outdoor Bouldering

Grivel proudly sponsor our outdoor bouldering courses and have provided the crash matting we use when out at the crag.

Mats

If you’ve ever been to Eden Rock then you’ll have a fair idea of what bouldering is. Outdoor bouldering is exactly the same as indoors; the only difference being it is on nature’s creations rather than our route setters'! We also use smaller, portable crash mats for practicality reasons.

For those who are entirely new to climbing and bouldering, here is a brief description of what is involved. Bouldering is climbing without ropes, above crash mats designed to lessen the severity of a fall.

Some outdoor boulder “problems” as they’re known, can go quite high and verge on roped climbing without a rope, but on our courses we stick to a height limit of 4m. 

The emphasis is on difficulty and movement, trying to find climbs where perfect technique and just the right amount of strength are required to get to the top, rather than endurance or a test of nerve.

If you are interested, please get in touch. We can travel to most of the Lakes District, Northumberland and Yorkshire depending on you. We can organise a course most days all year round. Pricing is as follows.

Half day (3hrs) £100 per session [up to 10 people – additional places £12 each] 
Full day (6hrs) £180 per session [up to 10 people – additional places £12 each]

The above prices are for the course in total i.e. the more people you can get on the course the cheaper it is per head! e.g. 4 people @ £100.00 = £25.00 / head or 10 people @ £100.00 = £10.00 / head. There is no minimum number on the course.

Outdoor Roped Climbing

Gemcrack

If you have only climbed indoors such as at Eden Rock we can help you transfer the skills you have learned to outdoor climbing. Roped climbing utilises an additional set of skills that builds upon the basics acquired from indoor climbing. If you’ve only ever climbed at Eden Rock then it may be the time to try roped climbing.

If you’re looking to get out and try something new and exhilarating you might want to have a go at this type of rock climbing. Since we use ropes for safety it means we can go a lot higher. Roped climbing can be a great test of nerve and endurance.

All of our staff are widely experienced, knowledgeable and qualified.
