Young’s Adventure Solutions was born out of a life long passion for climbing. In 2008, after 10 years of working in the outdoor industry, founder Eddy Young decided to take the leap and set up his own climbing and outdoor pursuits business.

Since then the business has grown to become one of the most successful climbing provider on the South Coast. With an 100% safety record, Eddy’s extensive knowledge of climbing locations all over the world and his numerous qualifications and Awards, Young’s Adventure Solutions continues to grow to offer the best quality climbing tuition in the area.

Our Values

Our passion for climbing and the outdoors is reflected through our highly professional selection of courses and training available.
As well as aiming to inspire others to discover their love of climbing and the outdoors, we also encourage and educate those who attend our courses on the importance of respecting Mother Nature.
We don’t just talk the talk… we use recycled paper wherever possible, and buy our equipment and clothing from the most ethical providers.
