The session is informal and participants are expected to be competent at top-rope climbing (i.e. having completed a beginner's course or be signed of as Competent Climber ). A qualified instructor will be leading the session, giving you the opportunity to get constructive feedback and refine your new (or perhaps slightly rusty) top-roping skills. Please note that this session is not suitable for practicing lead climbing!
Here’s just a few examples of what this session will help you with:
Revise your knots under supervision
Smooth out your belaying technique
Improve your confidence when climbing higher
Improve your climbing technique
Find a partner for rope climbing
We'll suggest next steps and ideas to take your climbing further
Please note that not all of the above subjects may be or will be covered on each session, as this will depend on participants level of expertise and individual needs.

Excellent course, it's amazing how much you can learn in just three sessions. JR was great. I would highly recommend signing up for this if you have no previous knowledge/experience, or want a refresher.

The course was great, nicely paced and with a good amount of supervision. Ethan was a great instructor, obviously very knowledgeable and skilled, and was able to share his passion without showing off or being intimidating. He was able to bring the class on over the two days with humour, enthusiasm and sharing his sense of fun. It is obvious that he is passionate about climbing and instilled his course with the enjoyment that he gets from the sport. The pacing was good, with nothing being missed and a constant safe progression over the weekend. I have felt confident to return a couple of times since the course knowing that I have a sound basic understanding and that should I find I have a question to ask, there will always be someone there to help me find the answer. I had not really thought about climbing as something I could get into, but after the course I am pleased to say I will be back and embracing it safely and with a spirit of fun. Thanks guys
