Level 1 Bouldering
This course is designed for both new climbers and those who have some experience but feel that they might be missing a few of the basics to be able to continue their progression. Level 1 Bouldering will help you avoid many of the pitfalls that hinder progress and will give you the knowledge and technique to train and climb effectively.
The cost of the course includes a 30 day unlimited use pass worth £45
Each of the three 1½ hour sessions is designed to address different aspects:

Week 2 - Problems and Solutions
Exploring personal strengths and weaknesses and using problem setting and solving as a tool for development. An introduction to dynamics, transition of weight, a more detailed study of foot placement, and steep ground.
Week 3 - Consolidation
Advanced footwork (toe/heel hooks, flagging), understanding momentum. Learning to structure sessions in terms of your activity and recovery balance. Putting things into context and looking to the outdoors for inspiration.
