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.

Awoke to a wild and blustery day at the Britannia refuge this morning. Plans were scrapped, extra coffees were drunk and we headed down.

Finished the day with some scrambling and summits on the Perron traverse above the Emosson Dam. A day salvaged.

Fresh snow but summer temperatures on the 4000m Allalinhorn today.

It was nice to follow a track this morning. Tomorrow’s trail breaking is going to be a workout 😬

Perfect autumn climbing weather. Photo: @allyswinton of Sara scrambling across the Perrons yesterday. The classic rocky ridge line above the Emosson reservoir.

It’s been a mixed few days weather wise, and the original plan of climbing the Grand Paradiso was out on hold. Flexibility is the key to a happy trip :)
