Who's this for?
Climbers looking to further their knowledge within the sport and learn new skills to keep them safe at the crag.
Your own harness and rack is desirable however we can provide you with any kit you need. 2 prussiks, a guide plate and some slings are perfect if you have them!
Our start time and meeting point is 9:30am at our centre. Here we will brief you on the days activity whilst having a free brew and biscuit. From here we will set off into the crag for an exciting days learning. We sometimes we use areas further away from our centre so you can get the most out of your course, therefore some transport is advantageous. However if you are struggling for transport please let us know so we can arrange some for you. The day will end around 4:30pm.
