About Climb Cornwall
Climb Cornwall began as an idea in 2004, became the trading name for it's founder Jay in 2013, and became a Limited Company in 2017. We are based in Cornwall, and the majority of our time is spent climbing, however we do do other things in other places, but the alliteration was good and the name sort of stuck!
Climb Cornwall is the combination of a love of climbing, reflective practice, mindfulness, technical expertise, the mountains, the sea-cliffs, adventure, supporting others, learning and developing, problem solving, challenge, and the fantastic people we've met along the way.
So far the most obvious crux has been building the website, although some of the slow periods where it looked like we wouldn't even get off the ground took a lot to get through.
So, like onsighting any good route - there will be challenge, we may have to back up and rethink, sometimes some help or beta from a friend can be just thing, while at other times it's great to turn it down and unlock the sequences yourself. There are guidebooks out there to help you (but often the route descriptions are confusing, or just simply wrong!), there will be pitches you cruise, and pitches you struggle on, and all have great value. The best bit of course, is knowing that when you reach the top, there will always be another route to climb, challenge to attempt, experience to enjoy, and reflections to share.
Ultimately we believe in freedom. The freedom to explore, the freedom to challenge ourselves, the freedom to learn, and the freedom to grow.
This belief underpins all the things our company values most highly - discovery, joy, development, adventure, learning and growth.
As a result of our conscious awareness of these values, we will strive to behave in a way that is professional, respectful, that has a positive impact on both the natural environment and human society, and to create situations that support and nurture positivity, honesty, and emotional freedom - for ourselves and our clients.
We will always review our actions and reflect on the outcomes of our practice, to ensure we are fulfilling our goals, and are operating in a manner that supports this statement to the best of our abilities.
Climb Cornwall and data protection
We are required by law to comply with the General Data Protection Regulations - we were pleasantly surprised that we actually had to do very little to be compliant!
Climb Cornwall gathers some information from it's customers when you book to ensure that the right customer turns up to the correct session and that in the hugely unlikely case of an incident we can provide important information to the emergency services and make contact with the right people.
This information is stored securely. It is never shared in any way with anyone other that the emergency services and delivering instructors. All information is deleted 7 years after the end of the activity (this may seem like a long time, but this is how long you have to make a claim if you feel we have been negligent in our duty of care).
Any customer may request a copy of the information we hold about them, and to make it really easy, we usually send you a copy of the form you submit when we confirm a booking with you.
