Rock Climbing in North Wales and Pushing Development because nothing… Developments inside your Comfort Zone.
With a 0530 start from Cardiff and a staggering 4 hour drive in the 4×4 while eating copious amounts of “Tic Tacs” and drinking large-sized travelling mugs full of strong coffee, we finally arrived in what has now become titled as one of the Top 10 Places to visit… in the World.
Yep, that is correct, North Wales has been voted by “Lonely Plant” as number 4 in their Top 10 Places to Visit in the World. Which for every Welsh man and woman alone.. we knew this already.
With 4 seasons of weather while travelling through South Wales, then Mid Wales eventually reaching North Wales, we were greeted with a small gap in the clouds giving us a tiny glimpse of the sun.
By the time we got to our 1st climb the sun and a light wind already had dried off some of the wet rock from the early morning heavy rain fall. Leaving a perfect dry and crowd-less rock climbing venue all to ourselves. One climb was quickly followed by the next, then by another and another and then final one more route before the 4 hour drive back to Cardiff.
With a 4 hour drive you can have no end of interesting conversations, from stories of years gone by to new thoughts of the future, planning life and family or business.
We always have room for people to join us for an Adventure that is relaxed, informative, interesting and doesn’t require you to be too fit?

Survival Courses run in South Wales 12 months of the Year, run By Former British Soldier Royal Marine Commando Steve Rees and Former Royal Green Jacket Chris Beal.
Living outdoors during each different month during the year can help give people a different prospective on what it is like to live Outdoors in the cold winter months compared to the warmer summer days when the water temperature is more pleasant to just jump into for an early morning wash.
Being taken “Outside Your Comfort Zone” even for just 1 night can bring home how we can miss the creature comforts of our homes, for instance without hot water, a missed dry and warm bed for the night and a glass of wine of beer to relax.
Are you able to take on an Outdoor Challenge with us? either as an individual, as part of a team of friends or your family or even as part of a Corporate Event [Corporate Event details] with your work colleagues.
If so, all you have to do is contact us with a date that you would like to attend one of our courses and we will book you in once we have sent you an application form and other details.
Courses are run in South Wales and cover the great landscape of the surrounding hills living on private land so there are no worries about upsetting local people and farmers.

Do you think your STRESSED? There is a Healing Potential in the Outdoors waiting for you.
There’s something inherently healing about spending time outdoors, this can be related to the exposure we get from natural daylight.
Over the past years of study research has shown us that even leisurely walks outdoors can help lead to:
- 4% decrease in the stress hormone cortisol
- 7% decrease in sympathetic nerve activity (also known as “fight-or-flight” behaviours)
- 4% decrease in blood pressure
- 8% decrease in heart rate
Also research shows, for instance, that older adults who spend more time outdoors have less pain, sleep better and have less functional decline in their ability to carry out their daily activities [According to research published in Biopsychosocial Medicine].
You’ve probably already experienced this. If you’re have you ever gone for a walk outside when you have been stressed out at home or in the office, I bet it helped you feel a lot better, it’s amazing what a quick walk outside can do for you.
Research has proven that after taking part in brief walks outdoors either in the evening after work, or study times or even at the weekends, that people have reported that their stress levels seem to have reduced.
“A 2013 study reported that taking a walk in a green area can put the brain in a meditative state, with results so profound they showed up on EEG (electroencephalography) recordings”.
We at Out of Your Comfort Zone, use the Outdoor environment not just for adventure but also to help people experience a more relaxing time in an environment that they may not visit as often as they wish.
You probably already know that hours of staring at the computer or TV monitor are bad for your eyes. Researchers have and scientists have recently reported that particularly with children that too much time indoors can create irreversible changes in the eyes and that young people are these days spending more time indoors than that back in the 1980’s and 1970’s.
Time outdoors is good for adult eyes and the more time we spend with the screen, the more likely we are to suffer dry eye syndrome.By going outside and allowing our eyes to focus on something more distant allows us to exercise different muscles in the back of our eyes and allows the eyes to relax and recover.
Our days out in the Welsh Mountains are enjoyable, relaxed and fun with an educational feel that will help you gain more knowledge of this stunning environment that surrounds us.
