Outdoor coaching

We offer a wide variety of outdoor climbing coaching, which can be tailored to suit your requirements.

Perhaps you want to explore new routes or crags or maybe your looking for help unlocking specific beta on your latest project. Our coaches (link to coaches) have a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to climbing in the South West, the UK and around the world.

We provide the same high standard of coaching as we would with our indoor climbing coaching (link to indoor coaching) while offering more specific outdoor skills and techniques.



Whether it’s bouldering or route climbing our coaches have the skills to help you improve your climbing technique. Good technique is vital to any climber’s success and is one of the best ways to improve your climbing. Our coaches can help you become more efficient physically, better prepared mentally and give you the tactics you need to succeed. Whatever your current level there are always areas of your technique that you can improve.



Our coaches are experienced boulderers and know what it takes to participate in this discipline at a high level. They are available to share this knowledge with you.


Sport climbing

Learn the skills needed to better yourself on bolts, improve your grade, visit new crags and push yourself. Sport climbing is a great way to stretch yourself mentally and physically whilst helping you to improve your flow, pace and movement skills. These newfound skills can then be transferred to any other genre of climbing.

You can book a one to one session with a coach or we can work with small groups of climbers who are of similar abilities.

To book outdoor coaching with us it is necessary that you are competent in the safety skills required for outdoor climbing. If you do not yet “know the ropes” contact us and we can organise instructional courses for you to attend prior to heading outside.



Our prices are based on a full day of coaching. They usually end as it gets dark or when tiered muscles stop play. The below prices are for coaching in the Bristol area. We will have to add a small fee for travel expenses outside of this area.

1:1 Coaching day £175
1:2 session £195
