Coaching and Holidays


Irish John from Swiss - Redpointed 7c
I work as a coach for many different people in numerous walks of life. Everybody has different requirements and as a coach it is my responsibility to provide the solutions to the challenges my clients face. From learning the basic techniques right from the start to advanced athlete development and maintenance programmes, I have the tools to take your climbing forwards and upwards.

My client base runs from one to one clients, small and personal groups to large regular group sessions. Past and current clients include The Ratho Climbing Centre, The Castle Climbing Wall and The Climbing Academy Youth squads, the Inter-services World Championship Team and The British Bouldering Team. In 2013 I took over as British Boulder Team Manager and I work alongside Dave Mason and Richard Hudson. We actively organise monthly Team Trainings and work closely team throughout the year. We have some of the strongest climbers in the UK on the team including Dave Barrans and Shauna Coxsey.

In the past I worked as a Planet Fear Coach until they stopped running holidays in 2008. I was a regular coach with Planet Fear running group holidays to Kalymnos, Sardinia and Fontainebleau as well as Portland and the Peak District in the UK.

In 2012 I joined Adrian Berry as 2nd coach on his 'Positive Climbing' holidays.

I also run bespoke holidays around the world for individuals and private groups so to book you dream trip just email me at gazparryclimbing@gmail.com.

Indoor Masterclasses are 1.5hrs and cost £75 for one-to-one sessions and £100 for groups of 2-4 clients. (Wall entry is payable by clients + travel expenses may be payable outside London)

Alongside climbing holidays we can also provide horse-riding, walking and multi-activity holidays.


Larger groups (eg. universities, schools, climbing clubs) can be acommodated on request. Please email for a quote.
