This five-day rock climbing course is for young people aged 12-17 year old who have experience climbing on indoor walls and want to make the transition to climb outside on rock. You'll get to learn new skills all around North Wales, on single and multipitch routes as well as on the best quality sport climbs. Our friendly, enthusiastic and highly qualified instructors will help you become self-sufficient as quickly as possible. We'll show you how to climb on different rock types, develop your technique, and to deal with a host of challenges unique to outdoor climbing. We may also try a number of climbing related activities, like sea level traversing, gorge walking or scrambling to improve your climbing, help you to use ropes better, and show you what other things are possible using rock and rope.
