"thanks for opening my eyes to the joys of outdoor rock climbing. Having spent years at the local climbing wall you have given me the confidence to take it outdoors. A great week full of fun, inspiration and superlative views. Thanks for your care and sharing of knowledge" John & Lesley Kerridge June 2014

"did this trip as mum, dad and teenager trio. What a perfect family holiday with some great role reversals as our son took responsibility for belaying and holding the parents ropes. Quality time in a beautiful place" Margaret Bailey Aug 2013

Multi Pitch leading, North Applecross

Trip Description

Based in Applecross initially we'll visit all the best spots in Wester Ross and the Isle of Skye enjoying a variety of mountain crag and sea cliff climbing.

There is a strong teaching element to the week allowing you to progress towards leading, if you wish, or just come along and enjoy the climbing. 

Learn all the important basics with us as we progress you towards ascents of some of the local classic multi-pitch climbs in Applecross and Skye such as The Cioch Nose and the Triple Buttress of Bein Eighe.

With diverse local geology and some of the most awe inspiring mountain routes in Scotland this is a must for adventure seekers. Grades up to severe.

As the client to instructor ratio is just 1:3 each programme will ultimately be tailored to suit the needs of the group at hand.

This allows a really flexible approach to the whole experience enabling everyone to achieve at their own level.

Everyone will  take something different each week  whether you're a keen hillwalker/scrambler wanting to be more adventurous, or an indoor wall climber keen to get outdoors, this is a week with something for every aspiration.

And we have a great base in Applecross. You can go the full hog and stay at the Caol Mhor guest house or take part in the trip by staying at the campsite or hostel on the trip only option.
