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. 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".

Although the company name is new we have been involved in the delivery of these courses for many years and have many satisfied customers, some of whom have gone onto bigger and better things.

If you are involved in any hill walking, mountaineering or climbing activity we hope we have a course for you, but just in case we have missed something don’t hesitate to contact us to arrange a ‘tailor made’ programme that meets your needs.

Unique to ROXCOOL is the option of booking and paying securely on-line.  We want our customers to have the smoothest and effortless process in booking onto any of our programmes.
