Scottish rock climbing courses

Rock Climbing courses in Scotland

One of the fastest growing sports in the UK! but it is much more than that; it's a way of life to some people. We offer a large range of rock climbing courses as well as personal guiding and coaching. All our rock climbing courses are available on a private / group basis and we try and run dates to suit you.

From beginners courses to coaching the 'E' grades, Mountain Motion can run rock climbing climbing courses on request. We look at fluid rope management, belay set-up and placing protection as well as solving problems that can happen. We will also coach you to move on the rock more positively and inteligently. After all, you rock climb with your head first and you hands and feet second! You will also get to climb some classic scottish rock into the bargain.

From easy access single and multi-pitch crags to some of the best remote mountain routes in the UK, we have some of the best rock climbing available here in the north west Scotland.
