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 or over any weekend or number of days depending on the course and/or days and dates to suit you.

The Lake District has many 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

Thanks for organising an excellent week. The course format, accommodation and set up was perfect. The guide was outstanding and gave us a full week of constructive tuition. I was able to put his training into practice the following week when I met up with a friend and did the Cosmiques Arrete.

Classic AlpinISM (Instructional Course)

The classic alpinism course last week led by Swedish Daniel was excellent! The itinerary was really well planned taking into account the less than perfect weather and the abilities and aspirations of the group - we all learned loads.

Chris Ward
Classic AlpinISM (Instructional Course)

Our three guides were all excellent: Thomas, Phil and Paulo. I can't speak highly enough of them. They were all good company and superb climbers, and patient with us all.
