Established by Ben and Cailean in 2019, Impact Route Setting started as a "setters workshop" with the aim: to professionalise the route setting industry and enhance customer experiences through high-quality experiential and CPD training courses.
Since then, we have expanded our operations to include climbing hold sales, outsourced route-setting and consultancy services. Impact are currently running the route setting operations at 10 walls across the country and have provided over 600 people with route setting courses here in the UK.
As of 2023 we are also the creators of the worlds first route setting online course and certification, Route Setting Essentials. We hope to expand our e-learning platform over the next few years with more online courses and workshops so our students can access our content from all over the world.

Lewis, Intro Course
The course was brilliant and I learnt a lot. You guys tailored it really well to people with no route setting experience and made it a friendly environment.
Michael, Intro Course
The provision of individual feedback shows a level of passion for the improvement of the attendees beyond simply going on the course. Ben and Cailean clearly care about the development and availability of route setting knowledge within the climbing community
Sandra, Intro Course
I actually had way more fun than I thought I would. The coaches were knowledgable, enthusiastic and really encouraging! The only unexpected thing was how sore my glutes would be from the ladder climbing!
