Rock climbing guide and instructor.

Ben Nevis and Glencoe.

Below is a list of some of the courses we can offer. We find that most peoples needs will fit in one of these courses but if you don't see what it is you want, please get in touch.

Resin to rock

This course is great for those that have spent time climbing indoors and wish to take the first steps on to real rock. We'll look at your existing skills and hope to build on them by looking at ropework, placing and removing traditional gear and hopefully taking you on your first steps in the outdoors. Ratio 1:2 max.

Learning to lead

If you've been out on a Resin to Rock course or spent time following others up routes and would like to take your turn on the sharp end, this would be a great choice. Again we'll look at your exsisting skills and build on them thinking about placing gear on the lead, protecting your second, abseiling and using a guide book to give you the confidence to go out on your own. This maybe on single pitch or multi-pitch crags, depending on your preference or needs. Ratio 1:2 max.

Multi-pitch climbing

If you've spent some time leading already but would like to take on some of the UK's many classic multi-pitch routes, this course will look at improving your ropework, stance management and multi-pitch abseil descents. Everything you need to go out and climb higher. Ratio 1:2 max. 

Improvised rescue techniques

Ever wondered what you might do if things went wrong half way up a route? We'll look at escaping the system, hoists, rescues and abseil retreats. This course is best for those that have consolidated their basic climbing skills and are looking to further their skills. Ratio 1:4 max.
