Climbing at Brimham Rocks
Brimham's varied and dramatic natural landscape makes it the most diverse environment in Yorkshire for climbing. If you've got the equipment and the enthusiasm, then come and have a go.
Climbing on the rocks can be dangerous and requires skill and special equipment. Please be aware of heights and sudden drops, and keep children under close supervision.
Taking specialist advice or attending a climbing or bouldering event is a great idea to ensure that your day out is safe as well as fun. We run events all year round for all ages, so come along and see what's on offer.
We work in partnership with the Harrogate Climbing Centre to provide regular sessions for all ages and abilities.

Some climbing techniques...
Bouldering: The most accessible and most varied climbing technique, this involves placing a crash pad (or bouldering mat) on the ground below the rock face then exploring the lower part of the rock. Instructors keep an eye on safety and help with equipment such as chalk and tape. Brimham has many ideal locations and interesting rock shapes to try this out.
