"It's like a first aid course but for your climbing skills"
As climbers we put ourselves in a variety of quite serious situations, however if it hit the fan would you really know how to deal with any given situation safely and efficiently? This course has been carefully designed by our most experienced and qualified instructors to help climbers deal with problems and emergency situations, wherever you are or whatever route you're on.
Who's this for?
Anyone lead climbs on a rope. Basically this should be on the top of everyones list!
What we might cover:
Looking after your second
Lowering past knots
Escaping the system
All climbing kit is provided, including shoes and chalk. If you wish to bring your own gear that's no problem.
Our normal start time and meeting point is 9:30am at our centre The Peak Climbing School however as this is a private booking you are welcome to choose and pick your start time and venue. 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.
