The first day is spent rock climbing on both single-pitch and multi-pitch routes, covering most of the skills described in the previous programme. On the second day a longer 'mountain' route is climbed, introducing 'alpine rope work' skills such as 'short-roping', carrying and securing coils, and moving together with protection from the rope. This combination gives two contrasting and very enjoyable days, and many people take this programme time and time again to improve their climbing grade both on rock and in the mountains and broaden experience.

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! Andy Challenor · Summits & Skills 4000m (Instructional Course)
