Our Rock Skills courses are designed to provide structured training opportunities for people who want to learn more and become independent climbers. There are three different levels so that complete beginners and those with more experience can choose the most appropriate starting point.
This 1 day course is your key to getting started! No previous experience of climbing is required. The content of the course is aimed at beginners, giving you knowledge about equipment use, locating crags and routes, staying safe at the crag, outdoor movement techniques and the fundamental skills to start your outdoor climbing journey.
Course meeting point: George Fisher shop & café in Keswick
Course timings: 9am – 5pm
Travel logistics: I encourage people to car share or use public transport if possible, in order to make the course accessible and minimise our environmental impact. We will share cars to a local crag, there are good train links to Penrith, and buses in to Keswick. Please inform me when booking if you are planning on using public transport.
Minimum age: 12
(Note: under 18s must be accompanied by an adult)
My courses are always catered to the clients, relaxed, fun and involve as much climbing and learning as possible! Bespoke dates are available on request.
