Open Courses in Snowdonia

 

UK rock climbing and scrambling courses can run throughout the Winter period, providing the weather is suitable.

This last year our courses were very much seeing the demand focused towards personalised courses for those who are competent climbing inside on walls and now want to fast track into climbing outside. Thus, this last year we have run many fast track courses that combine elements of Climbing Outside and Learning to Lead Climb and we will continue this combination for 2017/18.

The calendar below outlines the open courses we will run in 2017 and 2018. However, if you can't see a date that suits you, please contact us and we will try to help.

Open Courses in Northern and Southern Spain

 

Silvia is currently guiding in Spain with a team of fully qualified instructors.

This year we have been operating from three activity bases: Andalucia, Catalonia and Asturias.

As Winter heads in, we will be running courses mainly from Andalucia as the southern location offers more reliable weather. The Andalucian base is in the village of Villanueva del Rosario, 40 km north of Malaga. We have a fantastic mountain and rock climbing venue here. We are also close to El Chorro and El Torcal de Antequera Natural Park.

Our activity base in the south of Spain is easily reached from the main airport of Malaga.

Last year was the busiest ever and Silvia has taken on three additional instructors to help - Kevin, Ursula, Luis and Chiapi are all part of our great team.

 

Private bookings: Rock Climbing Courses and Via Ferratas in Spain 2017-2018

 

We can normally arrange Rock Climbing, Mountaineering - Scrambling Courses and Via Ferrata trips to suit our clients requirements.

We can also arrange a' taste of everything' day which usually takes place in the area of Vva del Rosario. This session includes a V Ferrata, rock climbing and abseiling.

Private courses can be delivered on a 1:1 basis or -if you are already part of a group of two people or more - then a private course can be normally arranged to fit in with your requirements. Private course prices can be found on the relevant course page in the "Prices" tab below the relevant course description.

 

Open Rock Climbing Courses and Via Ferrata

 

Rock Climbing Courses


In 2017 and 2018 we will be running two open rock climbing courses per month. Open courses will have a maximum ratio of 1:4 and we will need a minimum number of 2 people for the course to run.

The length of any type of rock climbing course is normally 1- 4 days. However, we can also run shorter or longer courses according to the individuals/group interests and aspirations.

In any given month two of our rock climbing courses normally include a weekend - with a bank holiday if applicable - and the other one is delivered during the week Monday to Thursday or Tuesday to Friday to allow for more affordable flights.
The content, level and dates for each climbing course or Via ferratas outings are decided according to the demand and the flights availability/prices. Please contact us for more details about the exact dates on each month.


Via Ferratas in southern and northern Spain


Guided trips along the famous Via Ferratas in the south of Spain such as, El Torcal de Antequera, Villanueva del Rosario, Archidona, Colmenar, Villanueva del Trabuco and the Ronda Via Ferratas have proved very popular for the last few years and we will continue to run them on demand. Many other V Ferratas are offered in northern Spain, Catalonia and Picos de Europa. Let us know which area you are interested in and we will do our best to help.


No previous climbing experience is required for any of the Via Ferratas as we provide instruction and guidance on the day, before and throughout the outings.


We currently organise two open trips per month: one of them on weekends/ bank holiday and the other one during the week. The time slots for each course/outing are decided according to the demand and the flights availability /prices. Please contact us for more details about the exact dates on each month.

 


Prices for Open Rock Climbing courses and Via Ferrata outings

 


All our open climbing courses and Via Ferrata tours have a fixed price which is 85.00€ per person per day.
In all our open climbing courses this price includes all the personal equipment you will need: harness, helmet, safety line and belay device. However, you will need to bring your own climbing shoes with you or -alternatively- they can be hired for 4.00€ per day.


In all our Via Ferratas trips the price of 85.00€ per person an this includes all the personal equipment you will need: harness, helmet, lanyards and safety lines. Rock climbing shoes are not required but you should wear suitable footwear such as walking boots, approach/scrambling shoes or a pair of stiff, good quality trainers.


A completed and signed booking form as well as a Euro BACS payment is required in advance. If you choose to pay by card, a fee applies. There is normally a surcharge of 5% on the amount paid. Please click on the booking tag for more details.

Longer courses can easily be arranged for those who feel that they will benefit from extra days tuition - plus it is fairly straight forward to build rest days into the course timetable if needed; there is lots to see and do in the area!

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have other dates in mind - we will do our best to help.
