Rock Climbing Instruction, Coaching and Guiding...

Rock Climbing is our passion. We climb all year round in the south-west both for work and pleasure and it’s this knowledge and enthusiasm that we believe sets us apart from the rest.

Climbing in Dorset, Devon and Cornwall

Assessed to the highest Rock Climbing qualification standard in the UK with an intimate knowledge of the climbing venues means we’re highly confident we’ll take you on some exciting climbs, safely. Vertical Frontiers specialise in low ratio rock climbing instruction. 1:1 or 1:2 ratios allow our clients to maximise their time with us to achieve exactly what they want.

We are primarily based on Dartmoor with easy access to the granite tors on the moor as well as the sea cliffs of the south and north Devon coasts and further into Dorset at Portland and Swanage.

We also climb and instruct in west and north Cornwall on the many classic cliffs such as Bosigran, Sennan, Chair Ladder and the many smaller venues in between.

I did two weekend trad courses with Matt on Dartmoor. First time I wasn't fortunate enough to equip myself and use the skills I learnt but still had a fantastic weekend an enjoyed every aspect. Super friendly, helpful and calm instruction!

DETAILS AND BOOKING

Sunshine and Dry Rock Guaranteed!

Well, kind of... most of the time. Rock Climbing in Devon is a year round activity and we are lucky to have a wide range of rock types and climbing styles meaning we can climb in sheltered spots if it’s too wet or windy up on Dartmoor.

West Cornwall is famous for it’s high dramatic granite cliffs with the atlantic swells close by. There is a huge amount of climbing to suit very ability from low grade single pitch routes at Sennan through to multi pitch extremes at Bosigran, Chair Ladder and many more besides.

Courses to suit all abilities

We run courses tailored to suit your needs, and adapt our climbs for venues and weather. From beginners to sea cliff rescue weekends, we can do it all! Visit our Blog page to see what we’ve been up to, we’re out climbing a fair bit. Contact us if you would like more information.

It got a bit chilly on the fingers this morning - rock climbing at 3000m after some snow overnight. We carried rock shoes but kept the big boots on all the way, just for the warmth :)

The Cabane d'Orny is a great hut, friendly, traditional and tons of accessible rock right out the back door. Planning on doing more there next summer.

Back up high after the weekends storms. Found some nice consolidated snow for a mini north face training climb. Feels quiet after the August crowds.
