GORE-TEX Women's Progression Trad Climbing
Supported by GORE-TEX. 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 focusing on improving your trad rock climbing. It is 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 become more independent. 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.

Testimonials For ISM
"I loved the course and Terry was great. I learned a lot and had a lot of fun and feel confident and secure in my technique".
Our three guides were all excellent: Thomas, Phil and Paulo. I can't speak highly enough of them. They were all good company and superb climbers, and patient with us all.
The course content was brilliant. No knocking whatsoever. We had Jacky for the duration, and his experience shines through and his leadership. He taught me a lot of things, not just the black and white of things but actually quick methods to overcome tricky situations!
