We provide Climbing and Mountaineering courses, instruction and guiding services through highly experienced, qualified and insured Instructors.


We are proud to be based in the UK's biggest playground for climbers and mountaineers - Snowdonia. It's an ideal place to come and have an adventure. Snowdonia is home to the best rock climbing in Wales; the best Scrambling and the best hill walking in the UK. We want to share all of these things with you and our ability to do this comes from our extensive knowledge and love of these features.
Our aim is to give you a memorable, safe and affordable experience in all of the following and more:

  • - Rock climbing instruction, coaching and guiding
  • - Scrambling courses and guiding
  • - Guided walks
  • - Navigation training
  • - Environmental awareness courses
  • - Bespoke courses

No request is too bizarre or difficult, just ask as long as it involves getting into the mountains!

Higher Climbing Wales is owned and run by Anthony Eccles. He is a qualified teacher and holds the Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor qualification (MCI). He is also a member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI)

His climbing experience extends back nearly 20 years. From the Peak District Gritstone; to long Alpine granite routes; and to the sea cliffs of Snowdonia. He was a Mountain Rescue volunteer for 2 years and he has extensive experience in the mountains of Snowdonia where we run most of our courses and events. In addition to his professional teaching and mountaineering qualifications, he takes an active role as a volunteer for the British Mountaineering Council. Even when he's not working in the mountains, he's usually still out there climbing, Scrambling, running or walking.
