Introduction to Rock Climbing

The Introduction to Rock Climbing course is ideal for those either starting out with Climbing or those that have climbed indoors already and are looking to gain experience on real rock.

Courses vary in length as we find that setting a fixed timetable can put a lot of people off.  Instead we offer flexibility on the number of days or evenings in this course.  This takes into account those with busy lives requiring the course to fit around work etc.

We aim to deliver this course at a variety of venues to maximise the experience gained by students rather than sticking to one crag.

This two day course caters for two people and is priced for two days.
