From £20pp

This adventure takes place near Widecombe-in-the-Moor (Devon), a beautiful village nestled snuggly between rolling green hills and spectacular granite tors. If you’re looking for a fun introduction to rock climbing, then a day at the crags in Dartmoor is a great option. 

On the day you can expect your guide to meet you at the venue car park at 9.30am. You'll get briefed on kit, then let the adventure begin!

Climbing provides both a great physical and mental challenge, which gives participants a real sense of achievement, as well as a great way to get people outdoors and see some stunning scenery. This makes for a great family day out or way to spend quality time with friends.

All in all this is a fantastic option because it’s very easy to organize and requires minimal kit or fitness. We recommend you first contact the guide to agree a date, then book your accommodation. Adventure sorted!
