In a nutshell:

  • become a safe, confident and independent all-round climber on single- and multi-pitch routes
  • have a fun, informative and action-packed week
  • no prior experience needed


During this exhilarating five-day course you will learn everything that you need to know to become a safe, self-reliant and confident all-round rock climber on shorter and longer routes. This course is designed for go-getters, eager beavers and anybody who would like to build a sound basis for their climbing career from scratch.

The course is split into two parts. For the first three days, we will focus on single pitch climbing skills, getting you ready to be a lead climber on shorter rock routes.  The second part of the course is aimed at getting your head around multi pitch lead climbing on the sharp end of the rope. In essence, this course combines the skills acquired in our Leader Skills Course and our Multi-pitch Skills Course . 

You will learn about all aspects of climbing, suitably tailored to match your needs depending on your experience. This is a fast-paced course with lots to take in and the 'need to lead' from day three onwards.

The second part of the course takes place in Snowdonia because it lends itself perfectly for the content of the course. You will need to arrange your own transport and accommodation in Snowdonia. However, for those who do not wish to venture over to North Wales, we can cover the course content using the bigger crags in the Peak District at a reduced rate. 

Our instructors have many years of experience climbing in the Snowdonia National Park and will guide you around the most suitable crags in our usual safe, friendly and supportive manner.   

This course is suited to: anyone who has very little or no experience in rock climbing; anyone who would like to build a solid framework to becoming an all-round sound single- and multi-pitch rock climber.
