This adventure takes place near Bristol, a city with great restaurants and the majestic Clifton Suspension Bridge. If you’re looking for an exhilarating day out, then rock climbing in the Avon Gorge is an absolute must. Relish that feeling of accomplishment when you conquer your first ascent!

On the day you'll meet your guide at the climb location at 9.00am. You'll learn about the kit and soon be climbing. Depending on your experience, you'll be lead on single or multi-pitch routes, so you can experience and learn whilst being safely looked after by an expert.

Small ratios of 1:1 or 1:2 give you the best opportunity to learn and enjoy real rock climbing. All safety equipment is provided and the day will be tailored to your specific needs to give you the maximum amount of development.

All in all this is a fantastic option because it’s very easy to organize and requires minimal kit or fitness. We recommend you send the guide a booking request to agree a date. Adventure sorted!
