PRIVATE GUIDING-INSTRUCTION and OPEN COURSES

We can run climbing courses on private or open basis.

Private guiding and instruction

Private climbing courses are fast track learning and they are totally tailored to your needs and aspirations. We plan it with you to create the course you want -

Private guiding means you can choose the routes, dates, location and content of the day. Simply email us and we will plan something that works for you.

 

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 possible.

 

Additional Information


In all our open climbing courses this price includes all the personal equipment you will need: harness, helmet, safety line and belay device. However, you will need to bring your own climbing shoes with you or -alternatively- they can be hired for 4.00€ per day.


In all our Via Ferratas trips the fee includes all the personal equipment you will need: harness, helmet, lanyards and safety lines. Rock climbing shoes are not required but you should wear suitable footwear such as walking boots, approach/scrambling shoes or a pair of stiff, good quality trainers.

Longer courses can easily be arranged for those who feel that they will benefit from extra days tuition - plus it is fairly straight forward to build rest days into the course timetable if needed; there is lots to see and do in the area!

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have other dates in mind - we'll do our best to help.
