Beginner Climbing Course

Our beginners courses are designed to teach participants the basics of both bouldering (non roped) and top roped climbing including the ability to identify route grading’s, holds, be able to climb with confidence using a range of techniques and safely belay a climbing partner using a variety of equipment and techniques.

 

Typical Beginners Course would look like this:

  • Lesson 1 (an introduction to basic safety, equipment and the team belay technique)

  • Lesson 2 (use of knots when climbing – aka ‘tying in’)

  • Lesson 3 (solo belay technique using an automatic belay system)

  • Lesson 4 (solo belay using a non-locking system)

  • Lesson 5 (focus on roped climbing technique & basic bouldering)

  • Lesson 6 (final skills test and introduction to the climbing club)

 

After successfully completing one of our beginner courses individuals will be competent and confident enough to climb unsupervised on any commercial wall (within the parameters of each walls recognised 'able climbers’ policy).

Climbers will also receive a certificate as proof of their fantastic achievement and an invitation onto our intermediate climbing course where they will continue to develop their climbing skills and knowledge which can open doors into our climbing academy and the potential for competitive climbing.

Our intermediate courses are designed to stretch and develop those climbers who have recently entered into the sport. This course is a fantastic way to continue your education in the sport leading on from our beginner course.
