Introduction to Climbing

If you have little or no climbing experience and want to learn the basics, this is the course for you. I’ll take you through all the skills you need to get out on the crags and stay safe.

The course is over a weekend. This allows us to cover the basics of technique and rope-work on the first day with at a single pitch crag, and then put it into practice on the second day with some multi-pitch climbing.

Ratios: There will be a maximum of 4 clients to 1 instructor on the first day and 2 clients to 1 instructor on the second day.

Cost: £150 per person

Dates: Get in touch for 2013 dates

What you get: Instruction and equipment (helmet, harness, hardware and ropes) are provided. If you need accommodation I can recommend somewhere or arrange it for you.

What you need: If you don’t own climbing shoes then it may be possible to borrow some depending on size, but I’d recommend getting some for the course. You’ll need warm clothes and waterproofs if you have them, depending on the weather. If you have your own harness and helmet then great, you’ll be more comfortable in your own. Plus a rucksack to put it all in.

What if it rains?: Often in North Wales you can go to different venues to escape bad weather. For example if it’s raining in the mountains then it’s often dry at the coast. We’ll endeavour to spend as much time out on the rock as possible, but if it’s really bad then we’ll head indoors, which will cost around £7.
