Course Overview

These 2 or 5 day courses are designed to be an intensive but fun introduction to the sport of traditional rock climbing, using the varied venues available in the West Coast, or further afield.

  • Use of guide books
  • Selection of appropriate equipment, and correct fitting of the helmet and harness
  • Instruction and coaching on basic rock movement skills
  • Coiling and uncoiling a rope
  • Tying of appropriate knots, for example re-threaded figure of 8 and the clove hitch
