Climbing

We offer both rock and wall climbing activity sessions at Adventure Okehampton and the centre is ideally situated for North Devon coasts and the Dartmoor Tors. Rock Climbing and the Climbing Wall are available as taster sessions for groups and families.

Climbing Wall

Our own climbing wall  (YHA Okehampton) allows anyone to learn the basic techniques. We start with belaying and move onto  low level traversing to build confidence. The wall has three different sections with varying degrees of severity including overhangs.  It is ideal for young climbers to start out as the wall allows participants to grow in confidence with a series of challenges adding complexity.

Mobile Climbing Wall

Great for special events, as the climbing wall can come to you. We usually take it to Okehampton Show and other local events around Dartmoor, so that anyone to learn the basic techniques.  It is ideal for young climbers to start out as the wall has different sizes of holds on routes allows participants to grow in confidence with a series of challenges adding complexity.

Rock Climbing

Rock Climbing sessions take place on Dartmoor at venues that suit the group level. Rock climbing is more challenging in identifying the routes and feeling for holds compared to tackling routes on the climbing wall. Our Family Rock Days allow you to learn the basic techniques from bouldering to climbing. Our weekend courses are a great way to build confidence, before joining a club. Our instructors know the local area well and hence can recommend places that you can go to further your skills.

If you are interested in staying at Okehampton to go climbing in the local area, then check out this page , more information about Rock Climbing on Dartmoor.
