PRLog (Press Release) - Jan. 17, 2010 - The Rock Climbing Company, a leading UK provider of rock climbing and mountain skills courses, has announced an expanded range of climbing instruction and mountain skills courses for 2010 in both the UK and Spain.

The adventure sports industry has largely avoided the recession that has hit other market sectors so hard and following on from last years incredibly busy season the Rock Climbing Company has announced that it is increasing by 40% the number of courses and holidays it is offering this year.

The company, founded in 2006 by top female climber Silvia Fitzpatrick, has quickly become established as a leading provider of mountaineering courses in North Wales and southern Spain. The success of the company is particularly welcome as it is based in North Wales and brings welcome income to a region that has struggled economically in the last few years.

The main growth has been in climbing courses and lessons for people relatively new to climbing. The massive increase in climbing walls has meant that many more people are entering the sport, but that there is a skills vacuum when they want to start climbing outside. These courses help fill that vacuum so that as people start climbing outside they do so safely and competently.

The client base for the company is remarkably varied, ranging from parents who want an adventurous day climbing and abseiling to individuals, couple and groups who want to learn to climb outdoors (http://www.rockclimbingcompany.co.uk/Climbing_Outside_Sno...) or learn to lead climb (http://www.rockclimbingcompany.co.uk/Lead_Climb_Course_Sn...) for the first time. The corporate sector, perhaps surprisingly, has also proved very buoyant despite the general economic slow down.

Silvia Fitzpatrick, company MD, was asked why she thought the business had grown so strongly "People want adventure and that is why the outdoor pursuits industry is growing so well, but I think that our exceptional growth has been because we offer a totally customised service - we will go out of our way to build courses that are specific to peoples timescales, experience and ability."  

The Rock Climbing Company (http://www.rockclimbingcompany.co.uk) bases are in Snowdonia, North Wales and Villanueva del Rosario (near Malaga and Granada) in Spain. The company only uses fully qualified and insured Mountain Leader Training Board instructors.
