Multi-pitch Rock Climbing

Climbing on the larger crags in a multi pitch setting is exactly what this course is about.  If you are already climbing outdoors and have existing skills with anchors and some basic lead climbing experience then developing you skills onto this terrain is a great way to progress.  Multi Pitch climbing can take you to some amazing places and give you some of the best days out.

We aim to deliver a course that is tailored to your experience and aspirations.
