Intro to outdoor rock climbing

Are you an indoor climber wanting to make the transition to climbing outdoors? Do you need a helping hand to learn the basic skills needed to start rock climbing outside? Spend 2 or 4 days with our experienced instructors on our Intro to Outdoor Rock Climbing course. Let us introduce you to the delights of rock climbing in the mountains of the UK.

Above all, we believe strongly in tailored and bespoke courses for you as a climber. As a result this means that we can focus 100% on your ambitions, rapidly develop your skills and accelerate your climbing career.

Most importantly, we’ll be heading out and doing loads and loads of climbing! However an idea of the areas that we’d cover at this level of course follows – in reality though we’d also cover loads more!

  • Gain experience on a variety of different types of climbs, rock types and grades
  • Get coaching on different techniques: jamming, laybacks, rock-overs and more
  • Learn about trad rock climbing gear: hexes, wires, nuts, cams? Learn when to use what and why.
  • Find out about trad grades and route types: experience the difference between VDiff and HVS
  • Receive instruction in anchor selection and rigging: learn how to rig your own ‘top-rope’
  • Learn how to abseil safely
  • Learn about guidebook interpretation: choosing your line and reading the route.

Our 2 day course will cover as much as time allows (and we do cram it in!) but if you want to develop your skills even more then 4 days gives us loads of scope for learning while really moving you on as a climber.

Finally, we also offer a variety of other rock climbing courses, these are:
