The wall also provides fantastic bouldering facilities for everyone from national junior champions through to Sir Chris Bonington. KeswickClimbing Wall & Activity Centre host regular regional competitions and run bouldering ladders throughout the winter.
We provide Climbing lessons for complete beginners, whether individuals, families or larger groups. Beginners are taught the basic safety principles of tying a figure-of-8 knot and belaying a partner. Full instruction is provided along with all necessary equipment. When the instructor feels that a safe standard has been reached - typically after an hour - clients are welcome to stay and climb as long as they wish without direct supervision.
These lessons cater for all ages, group sizes and abilities and are a great introduction into this ever-increasingly popular sport.
