Our 2 day climbing holiday in Cornwall is perfect for those who want the adventure of being on the rocks while the waves crash below!
Our Cornish climbing holiday is aimed at those who have climbed before, for example, those that have been on our Introduction to Rock Climbing Course. We recommend that you can confidently tie in and belay. We can adapt the climbing to suit your needs. Cornwall offers grades to suit all abilities - but we would recommend that you can comfortably climb to a minimum of grade F4+ to get the most out of this trip.
During the course, you will experience two full days of rock climbing. Our experienced instructors will work with you to choose climbing routes and will coach climbing movement and climbing techniques allowing you to progress at your own pace. We will also cover such things as guidebooks and climbing history.

The above list is just a guide and appropriate clothing for the time of year should be worn.
*Clothing should comprise of several layers to trap the warmth. Please do not wear denim as it restricts movement, is cold when wet and is slow to dry.
**For the walk-ins we’d recommend sturdy approach shoes or trainers with a substantial tread should be worn. Walking boots can be a good option but if we’re attempting long routes and climbing with kit they’ll be very heavy to carry.
Please remember the crags can be a fair walk or scramble from the car park, so it's important to put all of your kit in a suitable size rucksack leaving space for climbing equipment.
