About Climb It
Welcome to Climb It. My name is Brian Bateson and I provide rock climbing instruction and guiding, as well as guided hillwalks around Ireland.
While climbing has brought me to many locations, including Wales, Scotland, France, Thailand, Tanzania, Peru and the USA. It is in Ireland where I’ve enjoyed my favourite days out on rock and hill.
From hiking in Connemara to scrambling up Howling Ridge, trad climbing at Ailladie or bouldering in Doolin, I find Ireland has everything to offer the hill walker and climber.
