Rock Climbing

Snowdonia is one of the most popular climbing areas in Britain and a course at Plas Gwynant is ideal for people to either take their first steps on the rock, or to push themselves on some of the classic routes that the area offers.



Rock climbing is an exhilarating and rewarding outdoor adventurous activity.  When rock climbing with groups, we encourage individuals to look after the ropes for each other, actively involving all students, rather than staff doing everything, this provides opportunities for trust and confidence in one another, as well as developing teamwork skills.We have a number of crags available to us, with climbs of varying degrees of difficulty. This means that everybody can achieve success, and those who demonstrate an aptitude for the sport can be tested to their limits.

Rock climbing can be directly linked to GCSE, A Level and BTEC curriculums in both PE and Outdoor Adventurous Activities modules.
