Overview

Get outside on this five-day rock-climbing course in North Wales. If you've already learned the basics of climbing down at your local wall and want to make the transition to outdoor lead and sport climbing, our friendly, highly qualified instructors will help you get there. 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 we will give you coaching on your movement techniques and input into how to take your climbing to the next level.

Snowdonia has some of the UK’s best and most varied crags. There really is no better place to get inspired to get out rock climbing.

Itinerary

* 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. 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 try to visit a range of venues, from high mountain crags to sea cliffs. For the first two days we’ll visit single pitch crags (less than one rope length high). For the final three days, we split into smaller groups and tackle some of the larger multi pitch crags. Over the week, we intend to look at the following areas

Lots of good climbing and movement coaching

Climbing hardware and equipment

Ropework for single and multi pitch crags

Abseiling (with self protection)

Understanding the principles of lead climbing

Judgement, route choice and route finding (a good nose for where it goes!)

The BMC - services and clubs

Where do I go from here? - after the course.

Experience Required
