Climbing at Brimham Rocks
Brimham's varied and dramatic natural landscape makes it the most diverse landscape in Yorkshire for climbing. If you've got the equipment and the enthusiasm, then come and have a go.
What types of climbing are available at Brimham?
- 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.
- Roped climbing: Here, an instructor sets up a system of ropes to recreate the security of an indoor climbing wall. At Brimham, our taller rock faces overlook the stunning valley of Lower Nidderdale.
- Weaseling: Ideal for children, this involves scrambling through tight spaces, around twisty passages and discovering all of our rocks' nooks and crannies.
- Abseiling: This is a fun and spectacular day out. We hold occasional charity abseiling days here at Brimham.
