Our Beginner Outdoor Rock Climbing Course is the perfect way to experience climbing on real rock for those with little or no prior experience. Being based in the PeakDistrict we have easy access to some of the best rockclimbing in the UK which means our experiencedinstructors can always find the right location and level of challenge for you. This course is therefore just as suitable for complete beginners who have never climbed before as it is for those who have previously climbed indoors and are looking to refresh their skills or get a taste of climbing on real rock.
The first day follows the same format as our popular Outdoor Rock Climbing Taster Day. Initially you will learn everything you need to climbsafely with the focus quickly moving onto increasingconfidence and improving your climbingtechnique. Adding a second day gives even more opportunity for handsonexperienceofclimbing and allows our instructors to introduce you to a greater range of climbing techniques, many of which are difficult or impossible to learn while climbing indoors. You will also have the opportunity to look at associated skills, you could for example tryabseiling or begin to look at the wide range of equipment that is available to climbers.
If you are looking for a course where you can focus on becoming a competent 'second' or looking at some more rope techniques, have a look at our lower ratio 2 dayIntermediate Climbing Course.
