Lake District Rock Climbing

ISM offers Lake District Rock Climbing courses for anyone who wishes to try rock climbing outdoors for the first time, through to someone wanting to develop their skills to become more independent or someone wanting to prepare to their alpine trip with objectives such as the Matterhorn or Eiger in mind.

The Lake District is steeped in climbing history and is a fantastic place to explore combining valley and road side crags that are very accessible to high mountain crags and summits for more adventurous mountain days and alpine preparation weekends.

Our Rock Climbing courses in the Lake District can be run as single days whilst you're here in the Lake District on holiday or over any weekend or numbers of days depending on the course and/or days and dates to suit you.

The Lake District has also any number of options when it comes to accommodation from camping through to B&B style accommodation and hotels.

Please give us a call here in the Lake District to talk through any objectives you may have or help when considering our courses so that we can help you plan your day or weekend course.

We arrange activities and courses for individuals and groups at mutually convenient times.

Testimonials For ISM

This was a fantastic trip. Paolo was excellent. The accommodation great. All helped along by wall to wall sunshine, stunning arctic scenery and some superb snow, so no problems as far as I'm concerned.

Perfectly paced and tailored, great variety of skills learned. Guiding and Instruction? Thomas was fab! Everything was pitched at the right level (no pun intended), safety was always paramount and everyone had so much fun learning everything.

Thanks for a fantastic week. It was really one of the best things I have ever done. I learned a lot during the week, not only about climbing technique, but also about attitude.
