Cancellation by climb for life

Our courses require minimum numbers and suitable weather conditions in order to run (these vary according to the course). We will refund your payment in full, or transfer your booking to a future date, if minimum numbers are not reached or due to adverse weather. We will notify you of the cancellation not less than three days prior to the course (minimum numbers not reached) or one or two days prior to the course (poor weather). We rarely cancel but we may need to if bad weather means that we can't run an enjoyable course.

cancellation by the client

For our courses (other than the climbing trip to Spain): in the event of cancellation by you, we will offer a full refund if the place is cancelled at least four weeks prior to the course. If cancellation is made within the four week period, the fee is non-refundable unless we can fill your place. Different rules apply for the Coaching Scheme since booking is made through Mountain Training and the BMC.


We are keen to reduce unnecessary vehicle journeys when travelling to the same venue; lifts from the York area may be available.
