Our focus is on mountain activities, in particular rock climbing, mountain walking, scrambling and gorge walking, but we can also offer mountain biking and canoeing. We cater for every skill level, providing fun have a go sessions for complete beginners, as well as a progressive range of skills development courses.

For aspiring mountaineers, we offer everything from mountain navigation courses to advanced multi pitch rock climbing. We run courses all year round, although the majority of our learning to lead and outdoor climbing courses take place from Spring to late Autumn. Course updates are posted under Events on our facebook page and also on the Brecon Beacons Tourism site ( If you do not see suitable course dates there, please feel free to get in touch with us to discuss any aspirations you may have.

The majority of our activities take place in the Brecon Beacons area and the nearby valleys of South Wales, however scrambling courses and multi-pitch rock climbing courses are predominantly based in the Snowdonia National Park. Located between Brecon and Cardiff, we are also within easy reach of areas of outstanding natural beauty such as the Gower Peninsula and the Wye Valley. Please keep an eye on our facebook page and Expeditions page for details of overseas rock climbing, mountain walking and trekking adventures.
