Meet your Guide at our Reservations Counter in the Outside Sports retail centre. From here you'll be transported the short distance to our 'Base' where you'll be introduced to climbing, and outfitted with all the equipment you will require. 

Once your briefed, your guide will take you to the selected climbing location. Here all our climbs are great for absolute beginners, or for experienced climbers seeking more of a challenge. Enjoy the sun, the lake views, and the company of your group as you work together to climb, or rappel in our fantastic outdoor environment.

We aim to have you climbing within 30 minutes of meeting us, so you get real value from your half day with us, and plenty of quality interaction with your local guide, and new friends! After 3-3.5 hours of fun, we head back to the vehicle, and we return you to our meeting point, for a well deserved rest.
