Tony Penning Outdoor Instruction

At Boulders as well as running our own climbing courses we use Tony Penning to provide the Climbing Wall Award for our customers and staff.

Tony Penning started climbing over 40 years ago and now uses that experience to teach climbing in all its forms.

Tony holds the Mountain Instructor Award and is a member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors which is the representative body for professionally qualified Mountaineering Instructors in the UK.

As a Mountain Training Board approved provider Tony can provide training and assessment for the Single Pitch Award (SPA) and the Climbing Wall Award (CWA). Additionally he is also authorised to carry out training and assessments for the Climbing Wall Lead Award (CWLA).

Tony is available for personal and group climbing instruction, whether you are working towards a specific award or just climbing for pleasure.

Tony’s experience makes him the ideal choice if you want to learn to lead climb, sport, trad or multi-pitch. He can teach you the subtle details that can make the difference between success and failure.
