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.

Good mixture of progressive instruction and learning, climbing and guiding. We climbed some very good mountains from good huts and made the best of the mixed weather conditions. The course also used a range of situations and locations to cover a wide range of skills and techniques. Donald Connolly · Classic AlpinISM (Instructional Course)
