Welcome to Climb It. My name is Brian Bateson and I provide instruction and guiding in rock-climbing, mountaineering and hill-walking.

While climbing has brought me to many parts of the world it is in Ireland where I enjoy climbing most. Whether its the mountains of Kerry or the sea cliffs in Clare, I believe Ireland has everything to offer those passionate about the outdoors.

Why chose Climb It?

I am passionate about outdoor instruction and passing on what I have learned to other people.

I want to inspire people to realise their own dreams in the outdoors, to become self sufficient, so that they can enjoy the freedom of the outdoors as much as I do.
