Rock Climbing

A more personal challenge

Active 4 Seasons offer half day sessions to introduce rock climbing in North Northumberland. These sessions are suitable for complete beginners and those with more climbing experience. We have some great rock climbing locally on the single pitch Sandstone crags. These crags have many different characteristics. Some in the shelter of trees near woods and others being very exposed offering fantastic views to enjoy. As long as it is not raining we can normally find somewhere suitable for complete beginners right through to more experienced climbers looking to push them selves physically. We only offer single pitch top rope climbing not leading.

Roped up and ready to climb

The climbing locally is suitable for all levels of ability and¬†everyone will find a¬†challenge to return to in the future. The area has been climbed since the 1960’s and is still seen as some of the best sandstone climbing in the country. Come and enjoy lovely views of the Cheviots whilst relaxing between climbs, perhaps pondering a walk in the hills for the next trip. We use crags near Etal, Belford, Lowick and Alnwick.

Please email us for more information.

Why chose a made to measure adventure?

One of the benefits of having a made to measure experience is that it can be tailored to your needs. If you are not confident about heading into a climbing wall will lots of people watching you why not book a session with us? By talking to you before hand we can ensure we set up easy climbs to suit you. We will then find something progressively harder to develop your skills and confidence. Active 4 seasons have been climbing here for over 20 years now so know the area well. Some of the crags are on private land so having a good relationship with the landowners who kindly let us use the crags is important to future use.
