Course Overview

Our Rock Skills Intermediate courses are aimed at people with some experience of climbing who want to improve their movement skills, develop their ropework skills and learn about traditional protection.

This course covers:

Background and Planning. Choosing a suitable venue, how to use guidebooks and mobile devices to find crags and routes, crag etiquette and the work of the mountaineering councils. 

Climbing Skills. Warming up and injury avoidance, developing your movement skills and widening your repertoire of climbing moves. 

Footwear and Equipment. Rock boot fit, selecting the right equipment for improved performance and an introduction to climbing protection. 

Technical Skills. Building anchors, selecting runners, ropework, belaying, holding falls, lowering, seconding a route and personal abseiling. 

Environmental Knowledge. The impact of climbers at the crag, ethics, access and environmental considerations. 

Hazards and Emergency Procedures. Identifying hazards, managing risk when climbing, abseiling and bouldering, understanding common injuries, how to get help and the role of Mountain Rescue.

Registration with Mountain Training is free for 12-17 year olds and £20 for adults and it gives you access to all four courses. To register, create an account on the Mountain Training CMS. If you are thinking about doing this course, but do not need it to be under the 'Mountain Training' brand, we also offer our 'Improvers Climbing Course', that covers the same course content.

  • Have climbed outside for a good proportion of each day on an appropriate crag; and
