About Hawk’s Rock Climbing Adventure Days

Our rock-climbing adventures in South Wales are organised to suit your preferences, and the instructor can adjust the level of challenge on the day.  

Groups that are perfect for rock climbing are: 

Our rock-climbing experience days are completely tailored to you and your group. Depending on what you want from the day, whether it’s a half or full day and the chosen location, the itinerary is built around your requirements. But so you can imagine how the day might look, we’ve put together an example climbing day structure for you:  

  1. Meet at or near the location of the chosen crag or climbing location. 
  2. We will kit you out with all the required safety equipment, such as harnesses and helmets. 
  3. Your group will have the thrilling experience of climbing to exposed heights and will learn skills for climbing safely and efficiently. 
  4. When you want to have a break or lunch, you are more than welcome to. We are there for you for the day to take it at the pace you want to. 
  5. The half-day lasts 3.5 hours, with a full day lasting 7 hours. 

We take groups out climbing across South Wales and within the Brecon Beacons region, but we do have our favourite and most popular crags:  

Dinas Rock

In the beautiful Neath Valley, this crag presents itself as one of the best cliffs in South Wales. It consists of high-quality limestone rock with excellent features for climbing.  

Morlais Quarries

With single-pitch routes up to 33m, you are sure to be impressed by the cliffs of Morlais Quarries. This crag offers routes for both trad and sport climbing and provides a great opportunity to learn about the different types of rope climbing, including trad climbing. 

Boiler Slab

Boiler Slab is iconic for its coastal location on the Gower Peninsula. Overlooking the sea, you really can’t climb in a more atmospheric location. The type of climbing on offer here is mostly traditional trad climbing.

Why Choose Us for Your Rock-Climbing Activity Day?

We are a multi-award-winning activity provider, taking people on adventures since 1990:  

  • We offer great value: our full days last 7 hours, half days for 3.5 hours. And the photos we take are yours for free. 
  • Our instructors are amazing to go on an adventure with, but they are also highly trained, qualified, experienced, and knowledgeable in all the activities they deliver, which gives you further peace of mind. 
  • We are inspected and hold a licence from the Adventure Activities Licencing Authority. Safety is paramount to us, and our track record is exemplary. 
  • We provide all the safety equipment you need for rock climbing. 
  • We are flexible and adapt to our customers’ needs so they can have the experience of a lifetime. 


Rock climbing is one of the best activities for anyone or groups looking for adventure. This activity involves safely climbing to exposed heights, where the views of the surrounding countryside are breathtaking. Depending on your needs and skills, rock climbing can involve technical elements such as belaying, setting up anchors and placing gear. If you and your group want to learn more technical techniques, we can certainly make this a part of your day. 

Your rock-climbing trip will see you ascend rock faces of varying difficulty levels. To us, safety is a staple; our skilled instructors will guide you up and down the cliffs, making your experience both safe and enjoyable. For an extra challenge, we’re more than happy to bring other elements into the activity, making your adventure more personally rewarding! 

We can teach you and your group any type of climbing. For novice and experienced climbers, you will likely recognise the terminology for bouldering, trad climbing, sport climbing, multi-pitch climbing, single-pitch climbing, leading and seconding. We can show you the ropes for all these types of climbing. 

For individuals or groups looking for their first outdoor climbing adventure, we will take you on a single-pitch climbing experience. This involves setting up an anchor at the top of the crag, so all you need to do is concentrate on climbing and having fun. How much technical information or experience you want to gain is completely up to you. 

What skills you will learn is entirely up to you! We can teach you the following: 

  • Trad climbing 
  • Sport climbing 
  • Bouldering 
  • Leading 
  • Seconding 
  • Multi-pitch climbing 
  • Anchoring 
  • Belaying 
  • Prusiking/SRT (although we tend to provide this training on a technical skills day rather than on a rock-climbing day) 
  • Alpine climbing techniques (for experienced climbers looking to take their knowledge to the next level) 

Please contact us for any specific skills you would like to learn, and we will tailor your climbing day as needed. 

Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee the weather will always be ideal for rock climbing. 

In the case of poor conditions, we can offer an activity substitute for the same day to canyoning or Gorge Walking (something more weather tolerant), or you can re-book rock climbing for an alternative day. If you have any concerns about weather or conditions, we recommend that you contact us directly. 

You certainly can. For more information on abseiling, please head over to our abseiling page. There is nothing more adrenaline-filled than stepping backwards over a cliff edge. 

We can integrate your abseiling experience with rock climbing elements, so please let us know what type of experience you and your group are seeking. If you are interested in additional skills related to abseiling, such as prusiking, then you may be best suited to one of our technical training days. Please get in touch for more information.
