Private Climbing Course

Private Climbing Course

What are More than Mountains private climbing courses?

Our private climbing courses are designed just for you and your group.  You tell us when you would like to come, what you would like to do and what your previous experience is and we will create a course that is perfect for you. 

What dates are available for private courses?

We can run a rock climbing or scrambling course for you on a date of your choice.  We have availability throughout the year so please get in touch and we can let you know which dates are available while you are in the Lake District.  

Who are private climbing courses for?

Climbing is a great activity for the whole family or for a group of friends.  Anyone with a sense of adventure can try climbing with us for the first time; you do not need any previous experience or special equipment.   We have had children as young as four on our courses and retired folk looking for new adventures. 

How much is a private course?

Our private courses are £180/day which is a per instructor price.   The number of particpants that each instructor can take will depend on type of climbing you want to do but, for example, if you are all pretty new to climbing and would like to try climbing on rock for the first time then one instructor could take six people so your day would work out at just £30 each.  

We can also offer a half day session for £130.  If you have particularly young children then often a half day is just the right length for them. 

Where are your rock climbing courses based?

Our courses are usually based in Langdale, near Ambleside but if you are staying in a different part of the Lake Distrct do get in touch because we might be able to recommend a suitable venue that is more convenient for you. 

How many people can come on a private climbing course?

Usually up to six.  The number of customers one instructor can safely look after depends on the type of climbing you would like to do.   We also try to keep our group sizes as small as possible so everyone gets plenty of opportunity to join in and no-one is left standing around waiting.  For single pitch climbing (which is usually what you start out with as a beginner) one instructor can take from one to six people.  If your group is larger than six do let us know and we can let you know the options available to you.  Multi-pitch climbing is usually a ratio of one instructor to two customers. 

What do I need to bring?

You do not need any specialist equipment.   We recommend you bring:   Enough clothes to keep you warm and dry in all weathers, food and drinks.


What do you provide?


We provide climbing harnesses, helmets, ropes, hardware and climbing shoes.  All of this is included in the cost and there are no hidden charges.
