Outdoor Courses

Wouldn’t you rather be outside?

For a number of years now Mile end Climbing Wall have been working together with Head On Out, an award-winning outdoor company offering a range of climbing trips and courses for open or private booking, as well as for women only. Unlike other companies, they include transport as standard - staying ahead of the weather to find the best conditions, giving you maximum time on the rock. Whatever your needs and abilities, their team of friendly, highly-qualified instructors will keep you safe, improve your skills, and help take the hassle out of the outdoors.

On the day, your instructor will meet you in the morning and then drive to the crag with the best weather. Possible venues for trips include Portland, the Peak District, Somerset and The Wye Valley. Whatever your level, they provide individual coaching to improve your skills, tailoring the choice of routes to make sure that you get the most out of the day, and showing you the best lines available. As evening falls, your instructor will drive you back to London, with a stop for dinner along the way.

Please note: these courses are operated by Head On Out directly. All bookings are made via Head On Out and are subject to their terms and conditions. All queries should be made to Head On Out directly.
