Rock Climbing

Climbing FM in the Mournes

The Mournes with its perfect granite and wide range of crags and routes is a rock climbers dream. We take full advantage of this fact and utilise a large number of Mournes climbing areas on our courses.

Our climbing courses are very much aimed at those who want to learn the skills to expand their own horizons and go rock climbing for themselves. The courses range from those suitable for first timers through to those with previous experience who want to become more skilled in the technical aspects of rock climbing both single and multi-pitch.  In 2018, we did a lot of workj at Altndue Quarry, near Castlewellan.  It now has a number of sport climbs and is is a great place to spend a couple of hours clipping bolts!

All of our staff hold the necessary nationally recognised awards and on top of this have a huge wealth of climbing experience at all levels from around the globe. We hope their passion is an inspiration to you on our courses.


Current situation

As you are probably aware the current advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI is that we cannot deliver any face to face courses for our customers including use of the Hot Rock Climbing Wall.

We know that you and many others like minded folk are very keen to get back on track with your plans to attend and complete a range of personal skills training and qualifications in a range of disciplines.

Believe us when we say we are equally keen to get outside with you and help you reach your goals and complete that journey.

How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
