Get into rock climbing

The essential skills of climbing, in beautiful North Wales.

This two-day beginners’ course is a perfect introduction for first-time climbers.

By the end, you’ll be excited to have started your journey towards becoming an independent and safe rock climber!

Over two days we’ll visit some of the best climbing venues in the UK and cover a lot of ground. The emphasis is on getting some quality climbing done and simply enjoying being outdoors. It’s two days of climbing taken at your own pace. The perfect springboard into further adventures and more advanced courses.

The course will cover…

We’re not aiming to overwhelm with information but instead showcase why we think rock climbing is such a fantastic way of spending time outdoors.

This is a practical course, we’ll be out and about from the get go. You can expect to learn about the following points as they make a kind of starter pack of skills on which to build as your experience grows.

Movement skills
This means precise footwork and techniques such as bridging, jamming, and lay-backing. Equally, it means relaxing, breathing and starting to feel at home in a new and challenging vertical world. It’s important to get into good habits with this stuff from the beginning.

The climbing environment
Being hazard aware, staying safe, climbing etiquette, using a guidebook, grades and considering our impact on the places we visit.

Communication
Learning about communication and why the trust between you and your partner is so critical (and rewarding) in the climbing experience. This will quickly become apparent!

Using the rope
Tying into the rope, checking each other’s knots, keeping the rope tight on your partner (belaying), lowering one another, checking/caring for the rope.

Abseiling
Setting yourself and the rope up for an abseil (descending on the rope), the dangers of abseiling and making it safer.

Plus a whole host of other things as they come up!
