ROXCOOL is a professional instructional business based in and around the North East of England. We specialise in climbing and mountaineering courses but also offer opportunities for adventures throughout the world. We pride ourselves on being the ‘first choice’ provider both climbing related National Governing Body awards, such as the Climbing Wall Award (CWA) and Single Pitch Award (SPA), as well as offering technical self improvement courses relating to safe systems used in climbing and mountaineering situations. One of our most popular programmes is the Convert to Rock (C2R) which arms those people who climb indoors with the skills to move to the wonderous world of outdoor climbing. New for 2011 is our Mountain Leader (ML) Award. This award is aimed at those people wanting to lead parties in mountainous terrain such as in the Lake District, Scotland and North Wales. Also on offer is the Walking Group Leader Award (WGL). This programme is aimed at those people who are leading groups in the hills on none mountainous terrain such as the moors.
We also provide a guiding service so you can enjoy and access some of the classic climbs and scrambles of The Lake District. Gaston Rebuffat said it perfectly. In Starlight and Storm he wrote: “People have a fixed idea of what a guide is: a professional, who, in return for a certain sum of money, takes you to the summit to which you aspire. But, the guide is more than that: (s)he is a competent friend who controls the party, but who also teaches you and stimulates your interest. … The choice of companion is as important as the choice of the climb\".
Work with Under 18’s
Whether you're looking for a half day activity or a week long programme here at Roxcool we will develop a tailor-made package to meet your every need. Our programmes include a range of challenging adventure activities for Schools, youth groups and students which are aimed at team building, communication, trust, personal development, problem solving and many more. Or you can simply let us give your group a fun time getting active in the \"Great Outdoors\" in and around the North East. For older age groups e.g. college & university we can provide more challenging adventure activities but with the same amount of care and support we show to all our groups.
To reassure parents and organisers we hold the ALAS licence (Confirm on: Tel 029 2075 5715) for adventure activities and all the staff who work on our programmes are qualified or trained in the area they are programmed for.
