Rock climbing


At Arthog we are keen for everyone to 'have a try' at a variety of new experiences. We know that dangling off a rope may not be everyone's idea of fun, but we also know that having a go, overcoming fears and achieving success is a great way to build self confidence and self esteem. Of all of our activities, this is the one where you are most likely to hear the self satisfied exclamation ''I did it!''

Your options

We are very fortunate to have a variety of venues to chose from to suit age, ability and the weather!

  • Our quarry with climbing wall style holds is a short walk from the centre.
  • A short drive gives us access to the beach and several small sea cliffs.
  • Across the bridge to Barmouth takes us to the superb 'Barmouth slabs'.

For adult climbers keen to acquire an instructing qualification, we run the BMC Single Pitch Award training and assessment. See the 'Development and Training' section of this site for details.

And finally, for adults keen to develop their skills under the watchful eye of Arthog instructors we occasionally organise sport climbing trips further afield. Keep an eye on the 'Arthog Away' section of this site.
