North Wales has a wealth of outstanding climbing venues which we are able to use to teach groups that visit us not only how to scale a rock face, but also how to keep themselves and others safe while they are doing it. From the first step off the ground through to abseiling back down the rock face, we are able to offer challenge that suit all groups.


Scrambling is a mixture of walking and climbing, not on rock so steep that it requires a rope, but steep enough to requie the use of your hands. It is an incredibly flexible activity, with the level of challenge suited perfectly to the group’s aims and ability. A group can be stretched on a mountain day with the addition of a section of scrambling, or it can be used as an introduction to movement on rock during a rock-climbing day.


North Wales has a stunning coastline, and the beach is a great place for many different learning opportunities. From studying the coastal environment, changes in the tide and coastal food webs to scrambling on the rocks and islands to improve confidence and teamwork, the beach is a fantastic venue for learning.

Zip line

Children can push their limits by flying down our zip line – an excellent way to finish the day.

Via ferrata

A new addition for 2020, we have developed this new exciting activity just a five-minute walk from the centre in the beautiful Cymerig valley. A cross between rock climbing and a high ropes course, the Via Ferrata gives our groups the chance to challenge themselves to be independent in exploring the natural world up high on the crag, or down by the river.
