Rock Climbing Improver

climb - Up to 2 people

Description

These courses would suit climbers looking to transition from indoor to outdoor, or single pitch climbers looking gain more knowledge and skills towards progressing into multi pitch venues.

We will progress your climbing knowledge throughout day 1 by teaching you about gear placement and the fundamentals of 'bomber' gear. We will link gear together to build belays and discuss climbing principles such as ABC, IDEAS & EARNEST to give a solid foundation of knowledge to work from moving forward.

Day 2 would be a consolidation of the skills learnt on day 1, on a multi pitch or mountain crag. We will look after you in this terrain and create opportunites for you to make decisions in a mountain environment and work towards becoming a more well-rounded, independent climber.  

This course works best when booked for 2 people
