This 2 day Outdoor Climbing course is the perfect starter for anyone wanting to move towards becoming a safe outdoor climber.
The main aim is to leave you competent at setting up top ropes at a single pitch climbing venue.
No outdoor climbing experience is necessary, but you should be competent at fitting a harness, tying-in and belaying to get the most out of the course.
We keep the instructor : client ratio low, enabling us to cover more during the 2 days and we can tailor the course to suit your individual needs.
The course programme is flexible and the instructors will choose venues each day to suit the weather conditions.
