Rock climbing's special combination of mental and physical challenges make it a unique experience. Once you've tried it, you are hooked.
The intrinsic rewards that come from combining concentration, agility, balance, strength and judgement are unequalled in any other sport. Nothing heightens the senses more than the combination of delight and relief that comes from reaching the top of a demanding rock climbing route. Whatever standard you rock climb at, from novice to expert, these feelings remain the same. The key lies in seeking out new and exciting challenges.
That's where Plas y Brenin comes in to its own.
Based in the heart of North Wales' Snowdonia we are surrounded by some of the finest rock climbing routes in Britain, from the towering sea cliffs of Gogarth and exposed mountain crags of Cwm Silyn to the inviting slabs of Cwm Idwal and Tremadog. There's even a choice of rock to rock climb on too with limestone, rhyolite, quarzite, dolerite and slate all within easy reach.
This unique position in North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park not only allows us to conjure up great variety, it also means we can be flexible, adapting our rock climbing course location and content to suit both the weather pattern and your ability. Which ultimately means you get the most from your time on our rock climbing courses.
