Overview

Developing climbing through experience is essential. On this week-long climbing camp for young people aged 12-17 years we will combine expert coaching and lots of climbing to help you consolidate basic skills on a range of subjects. We'll climb on a variety of rock types, from steep limestone to smooth slate and rough dolorite. You can have as much adventure as you want! We may also try a number of climbing related activities, like sea level traversing, gorge walking or scrambling. At Plas y Brenin we aim to chat with the group and tailor activities to match your ambitions, all with the aim of taking your climbing to a higher level.
