Beginner Rock Climbing in West Cornwall with Kernow Coasteering
What to expect
Cornwall's stunning cliffs don't just make for breathtaking scenery, they also provide some pretty amazing rock climbing too. So, where better to try this exciting sport than on the granite sea cliffs of west Cornwall. This activity is perfect for people with little or no experience rock climbing, and is open to all ages and abilities. Despite what you may think, rock climbing doesn't have to be hard and scary, and we're confident that our instructors will get help you to 'top out' some routes before the day is done. Also, this is a great chance to try some abseiling, as we normally take some time to try this fun activity during the day.
This is a full day activity, so bring lunch, something to drink and clothes appropriate for the unpredictable Cornish weather. All equipment is provided and the minimum age is just 5 years old.
You will you climbing instructor at the car park. After selecting climbing shoes, and gathering the other equipment, you will walk along the southwest coast path to reach the crag. We will spend the day getting as many routes in as possible, as well as trying some abseiling too. You will have the opportunity to learn the necessary skills to safeguard your friends and family, and you can then use these skills to do more climbing in the future, whether it's inside at your local wall, or whether you're interested in becoming a regular outdoor climber. However, if you're just looking to climb as much as possible, without worrying about which knots to tie, no problem - the choice is yours!
Enjoy climbing up the rock faces as you take in the gorgeous views from your cliff-top location. As well as climbing as much as you like, there'll also be plenty of opportunity to relax, take photos, and enjoy a picnic in between routes, as well.
We provide you with climbing shoes, helmet and harness. We also supply all the ropes and hardware needed for the day.
