What Your Course May Look Like

Every course is unique as we tailor each one to the team and the weather, but this should give a flavour of what you might get up to:


  • Informal welcome chat with our staff and your course members;
  • Decide which crag is best for the weather and focus for the day;
  • Break performance down to consider the TTPP model (technical, tactical, physical, psychological);
  • Go climbing and see where everyone’s at;
  • Take it from there: seconding, top roping, leading with a safety rope and leading as appropriate;  
  • Coaching tailored to the individual;
  • Return to PYB for tea and cake!


  • Get lots of climbing in;
  • A progression from the previous day, focusing on whichever areas you’d like to develop;
  • This could be a single or a multipitch crag, and sport or trad climbing;
  • Return to PYB for more tea and cake, and a fond farewell.
