We will chat and establish your aims for the course before heading to one of the local crags. We will look at route finding, rope and stance management and how we can make a slick change over for the next pitch.
On day two, we get some mileage under our belt and apply our learning from day one on some different climbs, focusing on useful strategies and techniques that can be beneficial in a variety of situations.
You’ll be working up a sweat. Bring along a touch of enthusiasm and a little determination
