Overview

This immersive course is all about going climbing and gaining valuable mileage on rock. A ratio of one instructor to two participants allows us to go to multi-pitch crags and take on more demanding venues, such as sea cliffs. Rest assured, you’ll receive personalised coaching and instruction to take your climbing wherever you want it to go.

You should leave the course feeling more confident and capable as a climber and eager to put it into action!

Who’s This Aimed At?

Climbers who would like to develop their skills and build confidence seconding routes, or gain more experience towards lead climbing. You need to be able to tie in and belay confidently, and have seconded some routes outdoors (at any grade). If you’ve been on our Introduction to Rock Climbing or Indoor to Outdoor Climbing courses and been out on the rock ever since, this is a great next step!

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.
