Meeting at the main car park at the lovely Dovestone area, we will start with a steep   walk up to one of the the gritstone crags that are situated with tremendous views over the Chew Valley and surrounding moorland landscape.

UProjects qualified climbing instructors will set up the ropes on suitable climbing routes and show you the correct and safe use of climbing equipment. There will be an opportunity to climb several different routes and we will be supervising and ensuring you have a safe and exciting climbing session.


Rock climbing is a great way to discover the outdoors, and the wonderful landscape that lies on our doorstep (in our back yard!) 
Building confidence, trust and responsibility are some of the benefits young people will achieve. 
Also a great way to build your team spirit or partnerships. 
Just great fun.
