Rock Climbing Taster / Group Session

Yellow Crag, Newtonhill

This will involve an introduction to climbing outdoors. This is aimed at beginners, families and groups of friends with little to zero rock climbing experience. The goal will be to get you climbing as much as possible in a safe and relaxing manner and you will get lots of tips on how to move effectively whilst climbing.

What to expect

We will meet in a car park, have a quick chat then a short walk to the cliff. We will take some time to get you familiar with the equipment and the ropes will be set up for you. You will get to experience climbing up a cliff and then abseiling back down again. If you are at a sea cliff, then in between climbing is an excellent opportunity to look out for Dolphins, Seals and a large variety of sea birds including Puffins.

Locations: Climbing can take place at sea cliffs at Newtonhill, Cove or Cruden Bay. We also use inland crags at Ballater and Kirriemuir. Each location has a different feel and character but all offer good climbing.

Other details

All safety aspects will be covered by Liam and there will be an opportunity to learn more about climbing and staying safe. Don’t worry if you have not used any of the equipment before everything will be explained.

The ratio for the day is 1 instructor to up to 6 Participants. You will get more climbing done by limiting the ratio to 1:4. Under 18s are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. Accompanying adults don’t have to (but can!) take part climbing but must stay for the duration.

The Cost is £220 for a full day for up to 6, £120 for a half day or evening. Full days are approximately 8 hours. Half days and evening are 4 hours.

All climbing equipment is provided.
