Rock climb developer course

The Rock Climb Developer Course is for those with some previous experience. You should be able to tie in to a harness and know how to use a belay device correctly. It does not matter if you have never climbed outdoors as long as you have experience at an indoor wall.

Depending on your experience and the length of course booked we can start to look at the following:

  • setting up top & bottom ropes at single pitch crags
  • developing your movement skills
  • placing natural protection (nuts, hexes, cams)
  • stance management and belay building on multi-pitch routes
  • abseiling and protecting the abseil
  • using guidebooks and identifying routes
  • simple problem solving
  • buying your first rack
  • preparations for your first lead.
  • and most importantly  - lots of actual climbing



The aim of the course is to turn you in to a competent second on multi-pitch routes and if appropriate start you on the road towards leading your own routes independently. Along the way we will climb lots of the classic routes in the area and enjoy the diversity of rock types and climbing styles.

 For the Rock Climb Developer Course you should already have some climbing experience. Either outside or at a climbing wall. You should be able to put on a harness, tie into it with the rope and belay correctly.
