A Guide to Choosing the most suitable

Rock Climbing Course.

It can be hard know what type of climbing course to choose, so there is a flow chart below that might make the decision easier.

It is just a guide to get you on the right track and there is more detailed information in the same vein (and more words) in the tabs at the bottom of the home page and on the main rock climbing courses page

This chart is just an indicator - a lot of people will want and need a specific course to make the most of their time - thus it is quite common for us to run a combined Climbing Outdoors and Lead Climbing course that builds on their existing outdoor climbing skills during the first couple of days and then starts looking at how to lead climb.

Similarly a course with the same name can contain vastly different topics and have a very different emphasis - thus Learn to Climb can be a fun, experience based course or it can be an intensive course of instruction on how to start climbing safely in a variety of different environments.

Overall that is why we really prefer running private rather than open/shared courses because that way the tuition is focused on your specific needs. Don't hesitate to contact us if you are not sure which course to go for.

The links in the chart below all lead to the specific courses in North Wales, but we also run a full range of similar courses in southern Spain as well.
