From zero to climber

Beginner Climbing

Rock climbing for beginners (3 days)

Rock climbing is an exhilarating sport and our beginner climbing course is a great way for you to get started. The “Outdoor Rock Intro” beginner rock climbing course (3 days) is designed for those who have never climbed before or who have done some basic climbing either in the gym or outdoors.

In this 3 days outdoor rock climbing course for beginners, you will learn foundational climbing movement skills and top rope techniques for rock climbing outdoors.

Top-rope climbing (or top-roping) is the easiest, simplest, and safest way to climb.

During this course, we won’t just take you climbing: we will introduce you to the mechanics of the top-rope system, teach you how to belay, and help you develop the fundamentals you need to be a responsible and knowledgeable climber.

You’ll get lots of time climbing, and our instructors will coach you on technique and help you have a successful and fun day on the rock!
