About

Rock Skills – 1 Day Introduction Course

This course is aimed at anyone who is interested in making their first moves climbing outdoors or would like to experience what is on offer outside the climbing wall. You will have the chance to explore different aspects of the sport and a mix of rock types.

Example of typical program content:
• Get hands on bouldering and rock climbing
• Learn to tie in and belay
• Improve your climbing movement skills.

Is It For Me?
The one day course is aimed at anyone looking to develop their skills enjoying the rich variety of rock climbing on offer here in North Wales. As such it is ideal for: complete novices, as a refresher if you haven’t climbed in a while, active indoor wall climbers that have little or no experience of climbing outside. You don’t have to have any previous experience of rock climbing although being fit and active would be advantageous.

Aims
To develop a basic foundation in core rock climbing techniques, whilst climbing a variety of boulder problems & single pitch rock climbs.
