Stronghold Social Climbing Sessions


Neil Gresham is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading voices in performance coaching for climbing. He has been coaching and writing regular training articles for national magazines since 1993 and has pioneered many of the methods that are used widely by coaches today. Neil is the current training columnist for and Rock & Ice in the USA. He has also authored a book on training (‘How to Climb – Training’, published by Rock & Ice in 2017) and co-authored a further three training books. Neil has delivered coaching courses and seminars all over the world and has helped hundreds of climbers of all ages and ability levels to raise their game.

When coaching, he draws heavily on his vast bank of climbing experience, having put up hard new routes in over fifteen different countries. He has climbed E11 trad, WI 9 on ice and in 2016 he climbed his first 8c+ at the age of 45 when he made the first ascent of Sabotage 8c+ at Malham Cove.

We are very lucky to have Neil as a visiting coach to Stronghold and below is where you will find out what and when he will be at Stronghold next.


Britain’s best known climbing coach has channeled 30 years of experience into these structured sessions, which are proven to help intermediate climbers to improve fast. The classes are ideally suited to anyone who is climbing between V3 and V5. They are based on the bouldering wall but relevant to sport climbing as well as bouldering. So if your climbing has plateaued, let Neil kick-start your motivation and boost you on to the next level.
