The coaches.

You will be coached by two of the UK's leading coaches, Cailean Harker & Ben West.  

Between them, Cailean and Ben collaboratively have almost two decades of experience coaching juniors.

During the week we will cover; the rope work techniques required to keep us safe, how to read rock, the art of onsighting and repointing as well as the mental approach to climbing outside. There will be plenty of opportunity throughout the week to climb in the stunning gorge and get stuck into projects.
