Classic Climbing


At Classic Adventure we have a passion for rock climbing, and are steeped in the traditions and ethos of the activity, we know its history and culture. Dan, our chief guide has climbed for over 40 years, starting out on Wilton Quarries above Bolton, he's put in his time on some of the finest rock the world has to offer and he's keen to share all that knowledge and passion. Ask Dan what the best climb of his life is and he'll tell you the one he'd just done! We know what makes a great day on the crag!

We will take you for the most rewarding climbs on the best of crags in the most select areas.  If you do rock climbing, whether traditional or sport you'll love a day or more with us Classic Climbing.


What we offer.

Bespoke, guided climbing. Whether you want your first taste of outdoor climbing, to develop your skills, learn to lead, bag that first multi pitch climb or simply want guiding on a classic route. We can help. Get in touch to discuss your individual requirements. We'll keep you safe, ensure you have fun and meet your goals.

All our guides are AMI (Assocation of Mountain Instructors) members.

  • Climbing shoes
  • Walking boots/approach shoes
  • Climbing attire for all weather conditions (not snow, hopefully!)
