Enjoy an outdoor rock climbing adventure in the beautiful Wye Valley and Forest of Dean. Adventuers from Cardiff, Bristol and Birmingham can try rock climbing within an hour or so from home.
Fantastic Rock Climbing Location
Your Wye Valley rock climbing adventure will take place at stunning Symonds Yat. The limestone cliffs here tower above the River Wye, with amazing viewpoints into Herefordshire and across to the Brecon Beacons. The outdoor rock climbing area at Symonds Yat has over 500 named climbing routes so there’s something to challenge every climber from novice to expert! We meet our groups at the Symonds Yat Forestry Commission site, which has toilets and a café for lunch breaks as well as possibly the finest viewpoint in the Wye Valley!
Rock Climbing for Families
Whether you’re enjoying a family holiday in the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean or you’re a local looking for thrills, we think rock climbing is the perfect activity for adventurous families. You can help to choose the routes you climb at Symonds Yat and set your own targets. Rock climbing encourages co-operation and mutual support, although a little friendly competition usually creeps in as well. You’ll enjoy a physical, energetic activity, so it’s great exercise too!
Rock Climbing with Friends
Adult groups looking for adventure will love a rock climbing day here in the Wye Valley. Challenge your mates and learn who has the balance and flexibility to get to the top! It’s not all about strength, so you might be surprised to discover which of your group glides up the crag, leaving the rest trailing behind!
All of our rock climbing instructors are qualified, experienced and extremely familiar with Symonds Yat. We only work with carefully chosen instructors, so you can be assured of the best experience.

If you still have room for more adventure, try an activity combo. We always discount our prices when you book a full day, so why not combine a couple of our activities for the perfect day out. Popular choices are abseiling and caving which also take place at Symonds Yat. You can even try all three on our Symonds Yat Adventure day.
