Learn to Rock Climb

This comprehensive entry level course is designed to give those with no, or very minimal previous rock climbing experience, a solid grounding in the sport. Our aim is to give you the skills, confidence and experience to go away and start climbing on your own. We will get you climbing as much as possible whilst teaching and coaching the key skills along the way. These skills will include equipment care, belaying, movement skills, climbing calls, rope management, single and multi-pitch climbing and abseiling, sport climbing, guide books and grading systems, placing protection, building belays, basic problem solving and an introduction to lead climbing.

I accept that mountaineering activities are hazardous by their very nature. I understand that Snowdonia Climbing staff and instructors employed by them, are appropriately qualified and experienced to run the activities and will at all times proceed in a manner to minimise the risk of injury, and I accept that however unlikely, accidents and injury could occur.

"My thanks to Mike for a fantastic week on the rock! The delivery of the training was extremely thorough and each day was planned out to provided a new experience. I can't wait to get back out climbing and will be back in touch when next in Snowdonia."
