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.

Perfectly paced and tailored, great variety of skills learned. Guiding and Instruction? Thomas was fab! Everything was pitched at the right level (no pun intended), safety was always paramount and everyone had so much fun learning everything. Clare · Summits & Skills 4000m (Instructional Course)
