Rock Climbing Course Days

Okehampton is ideally situated for climbing with plenty of Dartmoor crags on our doorstep. We offer a great variety of climbing to suit all abilities from total beginners to those wanting to learn how start climbing alone. Our local crags are within walking distance and on some courses we travel further afield to the large granite Tor climbing venues for which the moor is famous.

Family Rock Days run during the school holidays at the rate of £49.00 per adult and £40.00 per under 14. We will take you up to one of the Dartmoor Tors and start with WEASLING a session that will introduce you to the rocks and how to manoeuvre round them. We will then move onto one of our local crags where you will start off with basic BOULDERING. After lunch you will be learning all the skills of ROCK CLIMBING and will be at the top of the crag before you know it. An ideal Family Adventure, especially for older children wanting a more challenging session.

If you are booked onto a Family Adventure Holiday you can take part in the Family Rock Day as part of your package (equivalent to three taster sessions)

Rock Climbing Days offer an in-depth day of climbing out on Dartmoor for those who want to develop their skills further. We will visit a couple of more challenging rock climbing venues allowing you to learn basic rope work, belaying and gear selection with plenty of time to put theory into practice for a full climbing experience. These days can be booked for any date to suit small or large groups. Great activity for school groups or adventurous Stag, Hen & Birthday Parties.

Equipment required:

  • Loose trousers such as track suit bottoms etc
  • Rock boots or trainers
  • Waterproofs e.g. Jacket/Trousers; day rucksack

Instruction: All our courses are run by experienced instructors who hold Awards from the National Governing Body. All equipment is provided.
