Lake District Rock Climbing

ISM offer Lake District Rock Climbing courses for anyone possibly wanting to try rock climbing outdoors for the very 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.

Rather than running courses on set dates, we arrange activities for individuals and groups at mutually convenient times.

Costs

We generally work with groups of one or two people but can also cater for larger groups. The rates charged (for instruction and use of all technical equipment) are as follows (please ring for larger groups):

WEEKDAYS - 1 person - £220 per day; team of two - £130 each per day.

WEEKENDS/BANK HOLIDAYS - 1 person - £240 per day; team of two - £140 each per day.

We are happy to suggest accommodation in local areas.

Testimonials For ISM

​Good mixture of progressive instruction and learning, climbing and guiding. We climbed some very good mountains from good huts and made the best of the mixed weather conditions. The course also used a range of situations and locations to cover a wide range of skills and techniques.

Classic AlpinISM (Instructional Course)

The course was excellent, lots of variety and provided me with a good range of skills. Loved reaching the summit of the Weissmeis, for such a nervous and unconfident novice like me, I gained a real sense of achievement from the ascent and the whole week. Huge thanks to Pat.

Jo Clark
Summits & Skills 4000m (Instructional Course)

I just wanted to thank you as well as Mark, our guide for the amazing week. The course was well organized and was just perfect for a beginner to mountaineering. We couldn't have wished for a better adventure. The memories are irreplaceable.
