Build your confidence learning key skills, to help improve your ‘Trad.’ climbing, whilst also developing your personal ability to move on rock securely.
A half-day clinic, rock climbing in the Lake District focusing on improving your 'trad.' rock climbing, and aimed at climbers who already have some experience climbing outside, but wish to develop skills and techniques further to progress in their own climbing and wish to climb more independently. This progression of skills will help you to be able to head out by yourselves and set up some top ropes, so that you can enjoy climbing outside with friends safe in the knowledge that you are using safe rope techniques and systems appropriate for that environment. You'll also start to understand the mechanics that underpin lead climbing and become more familiar with traditional gear placements and multi-pitch climbing techniques.
“What an incredible week learning the basics of Mountaineering. The course is perfectly balanced between summiting high alpine peaks and learning rope, climbing and glacier skills.
This was a fantastic trip. Paolo was excellent. The accommodation great. All helped along by wall to wall sunshine, stunning arctic scenery and some superb snow, so no problems as far as I'm concerned.
