Service Description

Introduction to Sport Climbing This two day course is for those who have developed their skills as a top-rope climber, or have experience leading indoors and would like to learn how to lead sport. On this course you will learn; - how to use a guide book -sport climbing and crag etiquette - how to clip quick draws correctly - how to safely re-thread lower-offs - learn about different types of lower-offs - how to lead belay correctly - falls and catching - sport climbing strategies (like using a clip stick to work routes) - some simple problem-solving techniques Equipment: Equipment provided – Harness (feel free to bring your own), helmet (feel free to bring your own), all specialised rock-climbing equipment. Personal Kit (not provided) – Climbing shoes, appropriate clothing (varies depending on the great Scottish weather), backpack (15-35ml), water/drinks and snacks/lunch. These courses are run around Glasgow and the central belt. The venues will vary depending on the weather (and will probably be a different crag on day two) so this is often decided fairly close to the dates. I will give you as much notice as possible (and hope the weather is kind). I reserve the right to postpone or cancel the session for any reason, including weather (this will be done as soon as possible), and minimum group size. Max group size is 4, minimum of 2
