The objective of this course is to introduce and develop participants core rock climbing skills whilst enjoying maximum climbing mileage. Most of the course will be based outside with all the climbing action taking place on real rock – weather permitting.

You don’t have to have any previous experience of rock climbing although being fit and active would be advantageous.

Our aim is to develop a solid foundation in core rock climbing techniques, whilst climbing a variety of single pitch rock climbs, such that you will be a competent and self reliant second. Topics covered will include.



This is not a residential course, the participants will need to be dropped and picked up from the training centre each day.


PARENTS PLEASE NOTE: Our  Under 18’s courses are for young people who are keen on a particular activity. The young people will receive expert tuition from highly qualified and experienced staff.

This course mirrors the adult one of the same name, the content and aims are similar but the style and approach in which the course is run is geared towards younger people.
