Our instructors will take you out to all the best crags that will challenge you and develop you, so you can handle them yourself when you head out with friends. They’ll have you following pitch after pitch of climbing on single and multi pitch crags, on stunning mountainous crags and wild, adventurous sea cliffs. This is a great course for you if you’re thinking about starting lead climbing but don’t yet have enough experience under your belt, or if you’re not interested in lead climbing yet, but want to have some climbing adventures. So it’s all about stacks of climbing and learning from some of the country’s most experienced climbing instructors.
