About

Welcome

Mountain Skills Training offer a full range of outdoor courses including winter skills, winter mountaineering, mountain skills, map reading and navigation.  

 

All of our courses are delivered by qualified, experienced and passionate instructors.

Who is it for

No previous experience of climbing is required to attend a Rock Skills Introduction course because the content of the course is aimed at complete beginners. If you do have some experience of climbing but aren’t confident about using the equipment required, finding the crags, locating the routes you want to do and how to stay safe on the crag then a Rock Skills Introduction course is an ideal way to learn.

What does a Rock Skills Introduction Course Cover?

  • An awareness of the types of places you can climb in the UK and Ireland, how to use guidebooks and mobile devices to find crags and routes, crag etiquette and the work of the mountaineering councils. 
  • Fundamental movement skills and climbing styles to improve personal climbing skills.
  • Footwear and equipment selection and how to use the kit you choose.
  • Tying into a harness, belaying, spotting and how to abseil.
  • The impact of climbers at the crag, ethics, access and environmental considerations for climbers.
  • Identifying hazards, managing risk, understanding common injuries, how to get help and the role of Mountain Rescue and associated emergency services.
