Outdoor Climbing Courses

Outdoor Climbing Courses at Bowles

As one of the fastest growing sports in the UK, climbing is something you should definitely try once in your lifetime. Be careful though, It’s extremely addictive. Done correctly, climbing is a safe activity plus a great way to get in shape. Many people would love to give climbing a go but refrain from doing so for fear of embarrassing themselves in front of their more experienced peers. In reality, climbers are incredibly welcoming to newcomers and you’ll very quickly feel like a member of this rapidly expanding community.

Fitways Adventures are able to offer introductory climbing courses both indoors and outside on real rock. All of our published courses are perfect for complete beginners as well as individuals who can climb but would like to refresh their skills. Our outdoor courses will give you a great opportunity to refresh your skills and experience what it’s like to climb on real rock.
