  • Beginner


You've already learned the basics down at your local wall and now you want to make the transition to outdoor climbing. This three day course is a great next step. We'll show you how to decipher guidebooks, give you the skills to place protection, judge its quality, and build solid anchors on top of the crag. You'll also learn efficient and safe ropework, and our friendly, highly qualified instructors will give you some coaching on your climbing and movement techniques.

The Objectives

A chance to take your indoor climbing skills outside. Get to climb on real rock with the beautiful North Wales as backdrop. Learn some basic ropework so you can get out on the crags yourself.


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

We Feel It's Very Important For You To Progress At Your Own Pace

Therefore 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 which is best suited to the weather conditions and the group. Our programme's 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;

Lots of climbing!

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

Experience Required

You should have some indoor climbing experience.
