Introduction to Rock Climbing

These excellent Introduction to Rock Climbing courses are run over 2 days with an optional 3rd day.

Our location in the middle of Dartmoor National Park gives us excellent access to a wide variety of climbing locations on Dartmoor and further afield.  The rock climbing in Devon and Cornwall is some of the best in the country thanks to the great quality rock and beautiful locations. 

A fun and safe introduction to rock climbing!
Participants will have the opportunity to learn the basic skills that are needed to get started in climbing including, rope management, belaying and advice with equipment selection.

This is a very practical course with plenty of time spent actually climbing, which is where you will explore your natural skills, giving ample opportunity to build on the basics learnt. A fantastic feeling as you 'top out' on your first route.

No previous experience is required and all equipment, including rock climbing boots are provided. Qualified and enthusiastic instructors will ensure that you have a fantastic experience.
