Congratulations to John Yates who accompanied us on a rare ascent of Natilik at Ceuse in SE France. John booked five days Private Guiding with ClimbFrance and although he hadn’t climbed outdoors for almost four years (apart from one day at Swanage), he managed to complete this tricky five pitch adventure route graded F6a (but feels much harder).

The photo shows a relieved John reaching the top after over four hours of climbing. Well done!

Beginner's Rock Climbing Holiday - New Dates.

Due to the success of our Beginner’s Climbing Holidays we will be adding a second week in September to cope with the extra demand.

The new dates are September 21st – 27th and full details can be seen at:

The Beginner’s Climbing Holiday is suitable for climbers with little or no previous outdoor experience and is popular with climbers looking to move from indoor climbing walls to leading routes outside.

The cost for the week is £595 and includes all instruction, accommodation, meals, equipment and transport in France.

‘Would recommend the beginner’s course to any indoor climbers to inspire them to venture outdoors.’ J. Murray. Surrey.

‘We had a fantastic holiday and learnt a huge amount. I would definitely recommend ClimbFrance to anyone looking to start climbing outdoors’ Katie H. Brighton.
