In 1978 the book Classic Rock by Ken Wilson was first published. It was a fantastic book listing some of the greatest climbs at the lower grades in the whole of the UK. It was full of inspiring photos and stories and became an instant classic.
We offer Guided Rock Climbing Courses across Scotland at all grades allowing you to 'tick' off some of the classics in the Ken Wilson book. We are based in Fort William which gives us great access to Ben Nevis and Glencoe which hold a huge range of climbs at different grades and a variety of Rock types.
Some of the best known classic rock routes are Tower Ridge, Agag's Groove, Archer Ridge, The Long Climb and Ardverikie wall. Further afield but still in Scotland, you have the Cuillin Ridge traverse, Integrity and the Cioch Direct on Skye and in the North-west, you have the Cioch nose. The Cairngorms has a number of Classic Rock routes too such as Savage Slit, Squareface, the Clean Sweep and the Talisman.
Our Rock Climbing Guides can be booked throughout the Summer months for single or multi-day trips with prices starting at £220 for the day.
