Open Courses

Open courses are run so you can join a group of climbers.

Climbing in an open course means you pay less but the group you join might be composed of people with different ages and climbing experience. Alhough we do our best to match people with similar climbing experience and ambitions, you will need to be flexible with the dates and times, content, location and the group composition.

We organise the group so that you get to climb as much as possibe.
