Hello and welcome to Wild Spaces,

Wild Spaces is more than just taking you out climbing or leading an expedition. It’s a learning experience whether you want to improve your climbing confidence, develop the right mental and physical attitude to take your performance to the next level or just explore amazing wilderness and journey for the sheer beauty of it.

Wild Spaces is run by me, Dave Sarkar and I run all of my courses and adventures myself. I specialise in climbing, mountaineering and organising high quality mountain experiences. I hold the Mountaineering Instructor Award, the highest UK award for summer activities so you can be sure of a rewarding and safe adventure.

Wild Spaces Climbing offers courses from complete novice to advanced coaching, take a look at my Climbing page for more details.

Wild Spaces Mountaineering offers a full range of courses from learning to operate confidently and safely in the mountains to advanced navigation in complete darkness. See my Mountaineering page for more details.

Wild Spaces Expeditions is the expedition aspect of my work. I organise and supervise high quality, low cost expeditions for schools, organisations and groups. My school expeditions operate mostly in the beautiful Lake District and combine valley camping with one or two wild camps, see the Schools page for more details. Deep within the mountains the solitude offers fantastic opportunity for exploration and development. I also organise and supervise Duke of Edinburgh expeditions at all levels. I hold a valid AALA licence as well as a DofE Approved Activity Provider so you can be sure my expeditions run smoothly and safely.

Throughout the year I organise expeditions to a variety of wild areas and they are always a great mixture of challenge and excitement but always a journey. These are for small groups of adults who share a love of wilderness and adventure and want to learn how to move through the landscape with minimal fuss and impact. See my Expeditions page for up to date details.

One of my popular offers is the brilliant Terradets climbing holiday. Learn how to multi pitch climb, enjoy unbelievable treks and enjoy a fully guided climbing adventure in Catalunya, Spain. I offer these Spanish trips during October, please email me for details about this adventure in one of the most wild parts of Spain.

Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge-Y3P.

This is one of the most famous challenges in Yorkshire and challengers come from all over Europe to test themselves on this fantastic day out. Whether you want the ultimate endurance challenge or just a great social day out raising funds for your favourite charity Wild Spaces can offer a full range of support and guiding helping your day go smoothly and safely.

Did you know that doing something together for a charitable cause is one of the five principles to happiness and is the ideal workplace and team building social event. Dave is available to guide for groups and organisations and often has 2 open events for individuals or small teams throughout the summer.

Wild Spaces supports the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Project and operates a strict “leave no trace” ethic for all Yorkshire Three Peaks events.
