Disabled and Blind Day Rock Climbing in Yorkshire

£999.00

Rock climbing is the dance between your body and the tune of the rock.
The core of rock climbing is solving challenges. Every challenge and route is different
but the goal is simple - go up.
We climb in two venues on this day: a climbing wall before lunch to literally teach you
the ropes, and outside at Ingleton Quarry in the afternoon. This is a short wheel chair
accessible journey from the climbing wall.
We supply lunch for this day.
The climbing wall gives us chance in the warm and dry to work out systems that work
for you before moving out into the outdoor environment.
We have a huge range of ways we can facilitate climbing from radios, to an along
side climber assisting placing feet and providing balance, to using a modified safety
system to reduce the load your body needs to support to progress upwards.
We have a selection of padded harnesses, full body harnesses and specialist seated
harnesses that can also provide head support.
Going up is only one side of the equation every active climber needs a rope manager
or belayer and we have some specialist rope management devices that are
particularly suited to those with limited mobility or dexterity.

Ingleton is our primary meeting spot for caving and climbing activities – we use it because it is close to the venues we use and has good phone signal to stay in touch with you. We will drive on from here to the cave once we have made contact – there is a free short term parking section next to the disabled toilet.

Parking

The car park in Ingleton is a pay and display car park. There are great cafes etc if you want to turn up early and grab a bite etc.

You do not need to pay and display to stay the short time that we should be there to meet for caving – make sure you sue the correct short stay spaces to the left of the community centre.

If you are going climbing: pay for all day unless we have planned to move on when booking.

Rock day

Try rock climbing

A rock day is a great way to get a taste of climbing where the emphasis is on having a great time and having a go.

After meeting and travelling into the climbing venue we quickly get you on the rock trying a variety of different climbing challenges.
Lunch is, as always, included.

Normally we have a go at abseiling, descending from the top while the abseiler controls the rope during the day.

We have a range of convenient meeting points to suit your needs and minimise travel time. We operate from venues near Coniston, Ingleton, Grange Over Sands and Ullswater.

After booking, you will receive an email with a unique booking code. You will be provided with a link to request your experience day.. Then all you do, is wait for the fun to begin.

Our mission is quite simple: we want to get more disabled and visually impaired people enjoying new, fun and exhilarating activities. We want to help people with disabilities and visual impairments feel confident that they can enjoy the same activities and life experiences as someone without a disability. We want disabled and blind people to have access to new and cool products which look like they were made for someone with a zest for life
