This outdoor rock climbing taster is an ideal starting point for those with little or no prior experience of rock climbing. We will be approaching the local outdoor crags with the aim to get stuck into as much climbing as we can manage. The focus for the day will be on trying out climbing but also on learning climbing techniques and rope techniques.
This course is suitable for those of you who have never climbed indoors or outdoors before. If you have climbed indoors it is a good opportunity to refresh skills and get a taster for rock climbing on real rock.
During the course you will look at:
Equipment including harness, helmet, rock shoes, ropes and belay devices
Climbing movement skills on real rock
Tying into the rope
Belaying and lowering/abseiling
Most clients bring their own rock shoes. They can however be hired. Please bring suitable clothing that will keep you warm and dry in most weathers and some sturdy footwear for walking to and from the climbing areas. Bring a packed lunch.
Insurance NOT INCLUDED
*for a group of 3 people minimum and 6 people maximum.
