What sets us apart

At the forefront of rock climbing coaching in Bristol. 

Up-grade strives to provide state-of-the-art performance climbing coaching at its best. With over a decade of experience, our coaches aim to deliver the latest coaching techniques whilst utilising conventional training methods to best suit your needs.

We are an independent company based in Bristol which enables us to tailor our session to suit you. Whether that’s at a new crag or your favourite climbing wall, the location is up to you.

Our coaches are dedicated, enthusiastic and professional. They personally partake in many genres of climbing at a high level, whether it is competing internationally in World Cup competitions, running it out far above their gear on hard traditional onsights or pushing their physical limits on sport routes and boulders.

They know what it takes to climb at a high level and they have the skills to deliver this knowledge to you.
