Climbing and mountaineering are fantastic sports offering a blend of movement, athletic development, emotional control, concentration, immense satisfaction and technical skills such as ropework, navigation and mountain sense. Many people enter the sport of climbing through indoor climbing walls and want to take the next step to climbing outdoors, being a self sufficient leader or wish just to update their current skill level.


Hill walkers often want to branch out into scrambling, or try their hand at ice climbing either in Scotland of further afield in areas such as Norway.
