The Objectives

- You’ll take your indoor climbing skills outside. Get to climb on real rock with beautiful North Wales as a backdrop, being coached on your climbing and movement techniques by our highly experienced instructors.

- You’ll learn how to decipher guidebooks, choose venues based on your ability level and the weather, and look at efficient and safe ropework that will help you on your journey to independence.

- You’ll cover the skills needed to place protection and judge its quality and build solid anchors on top of the crag.


* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

We know it's very important for you to progress at your own pace.

We carefully select climbs that suit your aspirations and ability. Our high staff to student ratio allows us to do this. Each morning the course staff will decide on a venue that is best suited to the weather conditions and the group. Our programme is flexible, but we'll visit single pitch crags (less than one rope length high) on both days. Over the two days, we intend to look at the following areas;

Placing 'bomber' gear for anchors and runners

Rigging a bottom rope on a single pitch crag

Tying into anchors at the top of the crag

Good belaying skills

Principles of leading and a leader's rack

Setting up and managing an abseil;

Lots of climbing!

Experience Required

You should have some indoor climbing experience, but no outdoor climbing experience is necessary.
