Point 5 is a company that has been created to share our love of adventure and the outdoors with you.

We do this through our guided walks, our mountain skills courses and through our rock climbing lessons.

The company was founded by Rich Wilkes who has a lifelong passion for the outdoors – from rock climbing as a child in Snowdonia to climbing 6000m peaks in Nepal as an adult – he has trekked in the wilderness Greenland cycled to the Alps and spent a lifetime in a harness on the end of a rope.

This passion for the outdoors carries through into everything we do, the films we make and the stories help tell, even our name is inspired by the north face of Ben Nevis. Our story is here – but enough about us, we’d love to take you on an adventure into the outdoors.
