Rock Climbing near Keswick

Rock climbing in the Lake District is exhilarating, strenuous, challenging and of course fun! At Mobile Adventure our highly experienced team of climbing instructors guarantee that you will experience all of these emotions during your session!

The Lake District, especially the Borrowdale Valley, has some of the finest rock climbing in Britain, and also holds some of the most famous historical routes - the 1st recorded rock climb being Napes Needle at the head of the valley.

Whether you are a novice rock climber or someone looking to brush up on their skills we have the rock climbing course for you. All of our instructors are keen and active climbers, and they will pass on their passion and knowledge of rock climbing which they have gained through many years of experience.

Rock Climbing Taster

Run as a half or full day activity our rock climbing taster course is ideal for those looking for a unique and challenging way of experiencing something out of the ordinary - the whole point of the day is to have as much fun as possible as you climb some classic Lake District routes and admire the beauty of the Borrowdale valley from a higher perspective! This is very different from a session at your local climbing wall, and you will be amazed at how quickly you can progress. Our instructors hold the MCI award (formally MIA award) the top climbing award in the UK, only gained after many years of experience, so they really know their stuff.

This rock climbing course is ideal for beginners, families or groups just out for fun. We guarantee to have you all climbing safely and competently by the end of the day, having learnt skills such as belaying, lowering, climbers calls and movement skills.

Both rock climbing and abseiling are options at a wide variety of venues within and around the Borrowdale valley, and our local instructors take pride in tailoring the session to meet your specific needs.
