Get stuck into some multi-pitch rock climbing, developing your existing experience to climb longer routes safely.
This is a great clinic for those climbers wishing to develop their skills and experience multi-pitch trad. climbing. It is also great for those who would like to develop skills to become more independent. We'll look at route choice, the extra equipment needed and things to think about when multi-pitch climbing, whilst climbing one of the classic routes in the Great Langdale Valley. A big barrier for people can be how to set up a belay part way up a climb and how to manage the ropes safely, or what happens if you need to descend part way up a climb. We'll address some of these issues to help give you some of those skills and confidence to tackle similar climbs in the future independently.
These clinics will run -
9am to 12.30pm - Saturday Morning (fully booked)
1.30pm to 5pm - Saturday Afternoon (fully booked)
9am to 12.30pm – Sunday Morning (fully booked)
If you are booking for Saturday, please specify on your booking form whether you would like the morning or afternoon clinic.

Learned loads and acclimatised well during the course. Its obviously been very carefully planned. Guiding and Instruction was excellent. Anders was fantastic throughout and made the whole course really good fun. A very professional instructor with a great sense of humour. Highly recommended.
Terry was a wonderful guide and made everything fun, laid-back and an overall good experience. I would be happy to ski or climb with him again. All the logistics in Leysin and in Italy went smoothly. A really nice time.
The classic alpinism course last week led by Swedish Daniel was excellent! The itinerary was really well planned taking into account the less than perfect weather and the abilities and aspirations of the group - we all learned loads.
