    Our Values


    Our passion for climbing and the outdoors is reflected through our highly professional selection of courses and training available.


    As well as aiming to inspire others to discover their love of climbing and the outdoors, we also encourage and educate those who attend our Dorset climbing courses on the importance of respecting Mother Nature.

    Mother nature

    We don’t just talk the talk… we use recycled paper wherever possible, and buy our equipment and clothing from the most ethical providers. The ocean and land are precious to us, which is why we are an active supporter of Surfers Against Sewage. We can regularly be found picking up rubbish from the coastline, and also support the Dorset Bolt Fund.  Even our website uses a carbon neutral server.

    More about Eddy

    Fristly Eddy has a massive passion for the outdoor sports!

    From surfing, climbing, mountaineering, skydiving, running and biking he loves them all.

    Eddy started climbing at the age of 10 years old!   Since then Eddy has climbed in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Europe, Thailand, China, Vietnam and not forgetting the UK.  His hardest rock route was in Thailand back in 2009 and hardest ice route was in The Rockies, Canada in 2008.

    After a 2 year intense instructor training course with Bicton Outdoor College (1998) and getting the best practical student award at the college he went to work in the New Forest outdoor industry.

    Most importantly in 2006 he passed The Mountain Instructor Award (climbing technical expert) and as a result he gained an extensive amount of climbing experience in the UK mountains and sea cliffs.  At this stage he started to run Dorset climbing courses.

    With 10 years of working in the outdoor industry for a different array of outdoor centres and corporate clients he has gained a huge collection of qualifications from the mountains to the sea and in the sky: Mountain Instructor, Beach Life Guard, SLSGB Coasteering Safety Award, BCU 4 Star Kayak Test and ‘A’ licence for skydiving to name but a few.

    In his spare time Eddy can be found hanging off a cliff, using his parachute or drinking coffee planning his next climbing trip somewhere in the world.



    Rock climbing coaching

    I’m a keen climber myself, and have taught new climbers for a decade – but I still refer to Eddy as the expert. He is the most experienced, qualified and capable outdoor leader in the southern UK. More than that he knows how to have fun and his good humour is infectious. Every adventure with Eddy is guaranteed to be a top class experience and leave great memories that will have you coming back for more.

    Rock climbing coaching

    Eddy helped me arrange a surprise climbing weekend for my boyfriend and it was such a fantastic trip. He already had experience with climbing, and I was still a beginner so I wanted to ‘learn the ropes’ and gain more experience / confidence for when we climb together in future. We loved having a weekend outdoors amidst a year of lockdowns, and brushing up on new and existing skills whilst having a laugh too. Eddy tailored the course to both of our levels perfectly – helping us to refresh knowledge, learn new skills and have fun in a safe environment. We loved exploring the Dorset coastline and learning to abseil too. Eddy was really flexible over the course of the weekend, allowing us to get the best from our 2-day experience. Thanks again Eddy, look forward to another climbing weekend soon!

    Rock climbing coaching

    I got hooked on climbing ever since my first intro to rock with Eddy almost a year ago. This time I asked Eddy to help me with improving my rock climbing technique focusing on trad routes and then putting it into practice on some easier walls (bridging was a revelation!) and finished with a fantastic VS route (completed with a shaky hands and the biggest smile I could produce!). Some abseiling, few controlled falls and recap on gear placement and anchors boosted my confidence and keenness for climbing. Eddy was professional, has buckets of knowledge and communicating it clearly and precisely, he is also a fantastic company. I can’t recommend Eddy enough, it was a perfect day and will definitely come back for more coaching. Thank you so much, Eddy! Absolutely loved it!

    Rock climbing coaching

    I recently took the Inside to Outside Climbing Course with Eddie and it was a really fantastic day, totally tuned to exactly what we wanted to get out of our time with him. Eddie is a really excellent tutor, telling us enough to make us think about what we were doing, but not overwhelming is with information until we were ready for it. This was a great day out and I’m excited to be able to use my new skills out on the rock face with a new found confidence and then look forward to booking another session with Eddie when I’m ready to take it to the next level. I can thoroughly recommend Eddies courses, having done a few climbing sessions before with different companies this was by far and away the best session I’ve ever had. Cheers!

    Rock climbing coaching

    I cannot recommend Eddy highly enough! His tuition is so thorough yet always fun; he ensures that learning and growing as a climber is exciting more than scary. We always felt extremely safe with Eddy, and we came away being much safer and more confident climbers. Before the session, Eddy took the time to listen to what we wanted to focus on, and then crafted a full day entirely around this, with his own extra (really useful) bits that we didn’t know we needed, but now are grateful for. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Eddy to anyone looking to work on any aspect of their climbing, and I imagine he’s equally great value on any of the activities he offers, as he’s passionate for what he does. We came home with huge smiles on our faces, both for the great time we’d had with Eddy, and for the excitement of what we’d learned and can now practice on our own. I won’t be seeking climbing tuition anywhere else!
