How do I book? Visit the booking page to find out how to book this course.

What's included in the cost? The course fee includes the instruction you receive, 1 entry to a climbing wall and any technical equipment. It does not include accommodation, food or transport costs.

What equipment do I need? I will provide all the ropes, harnesses, hard wear and climbing shoes. You need to bring along suitable clothing and footwear for the outdoors and a packed lunch. I will provide you with a kit list when you book.

What happens if the weather is bad? It not often that I can't seek out a dry spot to go climbing in Snowdonia due to the localised weather pattern here. However if the weather is very bad we might sneak into an indoor wall - where we can cover many useful skills.

Where do we meet? I normally meet at 9.15 at Pete's Eats in Llanberis. We'll have a quick chat about the course then head out to a local crag to do some rock climbing. We normally finish between 4.30 and 5pm
