Rock climbing


At Arthog Outreach 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

A short drive from the Short Wood Centre in Wellington gets us to a range of outdoor climbing venues suitable for different ages and abilities. Across the border into Wales, opens up further opportunities for variety and progression.

At the Short Wood Centre we have our own indoor climbing wall and we also make use of the selection of other walls available locally. We are registered to deliver the National Indoor Climbing Award Scheme (NICAS) Levels 1+2 and can also deliver GCSE modules.

For aspirant outdoor leaders, training and assessment courses for the Single Pitch Award are available through Arthog (Wales) and for adults keen to develop their skills under the watchful eye of Arthog instructors we occasionally organise climbing trips further afield. Keep an eye on the Arthog Away.
