Advanced Rock Climbing
Advanced Rock Climbing
If you have quite of a bit of experience already; you climb outdoors or indoors regularly and you are confident at belaying, an advanced rock climbing course is for you. Get in touch and tell us about your level of experience and what you want to learn or improve at. You can learn any of the following:
Learn to Lead
If you have experience seconding a lead climber, or have maybe done some simulated leading in our Intermediate Climbing Course, then it's time to try the real thing. Our instructor will double check that you have all the skills you need to embark safely on your first lead climb, placing protection as you go, and building an anchor at the top so you can safely bring your partner up the route behind you. Leading your first climb is a huge milestone for any aspiring climber, and is an experience you will never forget. Our instructors are here to guide you safely through every step of the process so you can learn to lead with confidence.
Maybe you simply want to climb harder routes? We can help you to find some routes that will challenge you, no matter what level of climber you are. We can look at improving your technique to help you succeed on harder climbs. Practice your lay-backing, hone your crack climbing, and perfect your crimping.
Knowing the Ropes
If you're confident with your climbing skills, but need to know more about ropework, how to climb safely, and how to get yourself out of tricky situations, we're here to help. Learn advanced rope techniques, knots and anchor building techniques to make your climbing simpler and safer. You can also learn more about how to place protection quickly and safely, and even techniques on how to deal with complex problems, such as helping a stuck or injured climber.
Advanced climbing programmea are on a maximum of 3:1 client to guide ratio. Previous experience is required. If you do not have enough experience, contact us to talk about doing a different course, or maybe a package over several days - we'll take you as far as we can. Hopefully you have your own shoes, harness and helmet that you are comfortable using, but don't worry if you don't, as we can provide everything you need. Advanced climbing courses last a full day.
