About
Our Wye Valley Climbing holiday is designed for those wanting to experience climbing outdoors on Limestone.  Climbing instruction will be provided by our highly qualified and experienced climbing instructors.  You’ll have the opportunity to meet like minded individuals and to improve your climbing skills and technique in a picturesque setting. 

Who is it for?
Our Wye Valley climbing holiday is suitable for most abilities. Our climbing instructors will tailor this climbing course to suit each individuals needs. This is not designed as a beginners climbing course, however novice climbers are  welcome - please contact us to discuss.  We would recommend that those who haven't climbed before join us for our rock climbing experience or introduction to climbing course. 

Prerequisites
A reasonable level of fitness is required.
 

During this climbing holiday we base ourselves at Symonds Yat rocks near Monmouth.  Symonds Yat is a village in the Forest of Dean a few miles from the Welsh border and a popular tourist destination which boosts a number of country pubs and guest houses.
   
Day 1
We will meet in the morning where our climbing instructors will introduce themselves and discuss the day ahead.  Throughout the course your climbing instructors will set up all the ropes, leaving you to concentrate fully on your climbing.  At the rocks we’ll go at your pace.  Half way through we will stop for lunch (you’ll need to bring a packed lunch) before climbing again.  In the evening after a quick relax we often get together in the local pub for a spot of dinner and a drink.
    
Day 2
Our climbing instructors will take you to a different area of the rocks to add variety to your climbing holiday.  Having seen you climb the day before our climbing instructors will be able to set personal goals and coach you on your climbing technique and style.  Depending on ability our instructors may also set up an abseil for those that wish. At the end of the climbing holiday our instructors can offer advice regarding your own personal progression in the sport of rock climbing.

March to October, please see the calendar for the next available dates.
