This intensive week of training and instruction is great for those with some climbing experience, but are keen to learn more! Whether you’ve climbed indoors or outside before, as long as you can belay another climber safely, this course is for you! You will learn lots more skills in your small groups of 4 to 6 climbers with each Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor.
We will start the course with a 2 day Rock Skills Intermediate course – a nationally recognised personal skills scheme run by Mountain Training. The aim is to enable you to enjoy rock climbing under your own steam at a suitable crag, using traditional protection.
We’ll add a day in the mountains, which will cover skills for reaching crags in mountainous terrain, before returning back to rock climbing for a taste of sea-cliff climbing. The last day will cover personal skills and development and how to move forward with your rock climbing once the week has finished.
The cost of the residential includes all food, accommodation, registration fees and transport during the week (transport to/from Snowdonia is not included, though a train station pick up can be arranged).
