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.
Perhaps the most experienced British guide working in the Alps, Steve has lived in Switzerland for more than 30yrs. He is a member of the Swiss Guides association as well as the British Mountain Guides.
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!
Thank for an amazing couple of weeks! Matt and Stu were fantastic. I learned so much but also had a lot of fun. I have come home feeling like a proper mountaineer, having made some great new friends and with some unforgettable memories. I plan to come back next year!
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.
