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.

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:

1 person - £270.00 per day; 2 people - £295.00 per day; 3 people - £320.00 per day; 4 people - £345.00 per day. Please contact us for prices for larger groups.

We are happy to suggest accommodation in the local area.

Neil, our guide for the week, was exceptional; a true professional, a huge inspiration and just great company. He shared so many useful tips with us and had great stories to share too. Looking forward to booking another course with ISM in 2022!”

Just a quick word of thanks for the course last week. Our guide Tom was excellent and covered a lot of miles to ensure we got the best conditions and great routes in and was always ready with a word or two of advice when needed - please pass my thanks on to him,

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.
