Want to get to grips with some rock climbing? Never tried it before? Or maybe you have only been indoors and want to see what it's all about outside? Then this is the weekend for you. A two day course taking you right from the basics of learning how to move well and confidently on rock all the way through to correctly and competently using ropes and climbing equipment.
Have you always wanted to know how to take your climbing movement to the next level but not been quite sure how? Maybe you would like some input on how you could make moves differently or how to read the rock to make your climbing more efficient and feel less strenuous? This course is tailored to the individuals on it and we look at a range of skills to give you an efficient and effective 'movement toolbox' when climbing outdoors.
This course gives you a great way to spend a weekend, learning how to take your rock climbing to the next level by leading your own climbs. You may have seconded climbs before but never had the opportunity or confidence to lead yourself or you may have led before but not been entirely sure if what you are doing is correct or the most efficient way of doing things.
This course can be bespoke to your needs. You might be a indoor climber wanting to learn about traditional climbing and how to take your wall skills outside. Perhaps you have been seconding and really want to learn to lead? Or you might already be leading but would like to improve and become more confident.
A two day course thoroughly covering all the basics of navigation to allow you to get to grips with traveling through the hills and mountains safely and confidently. The weekend will be a mix of both theory and practical. Utilising a map, a compass and a watch to show you how you can become a competent navigator even in poor conditions. We we also look at GPS and modern navigational tools.
