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

While climbing has brought me to many parts of the world including Nepal, India, Kenya, Tanzania, Thailand, Peru, Wales, Scotland, France, and the USA. It is in Ireland where I enjoy climbing most.

Whether its the mountains of Kerry or the sea cliffs in Clare, I find Ireland has everything to offer those passionate about the outdoors.
