Rock Climbing UK
Rock Climbing with Call of the Wild in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, UK
Climbing is a rock activity. What goes up must come down – well firmly attached to a rope anyway. A great way of seeing the majestic Brecon Beacons National Park scenery – even hanging upside down. For some people rock climbing is about a journey to a summit on a sunny day, for others it is an intense physical and mental challenge requiring training and effort. For others it is a great fun outdoor activity and an opportunity to try something completely different. Rock climbing in Wales is about putting on a climbing harness and enjoying yourself in the outdoors on boulders and outcrops, in old quarries and sea cliffs and remote mountain crags. We will supply you with a qualified climbing instructor and climbing guide who will oversee your safety and teach you the skills necessary to have a thoroughly exhilarating experience.
“ Just like to say what a fantastic time we all had and how impressed we were with your company.” Ray Wan
Who Can Do Rock Climbing ?
Climbing in Wales is suitable for any age from 5 upwards. We can offer a range of guided climbing fundays and programmes starting with the complete novice through to full climbing training and assessment for Single Pitch Award, and Mountain Instructor Award. You don’t need any previous experience to start climbing so it is a great group activity and a great way to spend part of your holiday. With young people it is a valuable activity for building confidence and trust and interdependence within groups.
Where Can I do Rock Climbing ?
Call of the Wild’s climbing sessions are based in the Brecon Beacons and on the Gower Peninsula, Wales, UK . We use sites such as Three Cliffs Bay, Dinas Rock, Morlais Quarries and Devils Truck to name but a few. However in you require training then we can take you to other parts of the UK. We are fortunate in the UK to have one of the most diverse selections of climbing venues anywhere in the world.
As we have this wonderful natural environment then we do try and encourage people to use the outdoors but we can also take you indoor climbing. We have access to a number of indoor climbing walls in the vicinity.
Whether it be climbing in the mountains or on the cliffs of the Gower Peninsula, which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the option is yours. No previous experience is required and our qualified instructors/guides and enthusiastic staff will ensure you get the most out of the experience.
We can also arrange climbing and mountaineering courses and hiolidays across the UK and Europe.

Good Combinations of Activities
Climbing is normally a full day activity. However it is suitable for combination with other activities for adventure weekends, holidays or longer duration visits. It can be combined with any of the range of activities available whether it be caving, canyoning, gorge walking, quad biking, paintball and clays. See also our adventure days where in a single day you can sample climbing and another activity such as gorge walking and/or caving.
“I would like to say thank you for making this a great weekend. The activities were great but best of all the services were second to none.” Mitesh Chandegra
Can I Use a Camera?
Yes you can but we would only recommend bringing a disposal camera or inexpensive camnera. With any other camera we cannot guarantee it will make it out in one piece. We recommend that at least one of your party take a camera climbingin as you’ll have some stunning pictures to show everyone and to prove those tall tales are actually true!
We can provide waterproof cameras for purchase which can either be pre-ordered or bought on the day.
Take Away a Video or Photos
We can arrange for a professional photographer to follow you climbing. The photos can be put onto disc for you to take away before the end of your stay. Please contact us for more details.
In certain circumstances we can arrange for your group to filmed but this is only by prior arrangement.
Wouldn’t it be great to have those visual images to show at the reception for stag parties, show back in the office following an outdoor team building event or to keep as a memory of those special occasions such as 40th birthdays.
