These are days that will be a professional, safe and fun introduction to the sport of traditional outdoor rock climbing, using the varied venues available in the Highlands of Scotland. You can decide if you want to be Guided or be taught (Instruction) the essentials of rock climbing techniques.

Choose Guided – The advantage of being guided is that you can focus on where you are and what you’re doing (you decide if you want to look down, or not). This is perfect for people who want to develop their confidence on the climb, and get more climbing mileage in.

Choose Instruction – This enables you to be carefully taught the skills involved (see the Topics listed below), to enable you to increase your competence, safety and confidence – helping you become more independent with future climbs.

Topics covered can include:

  • 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
  • Safe, effective and appropriate belaying. Top roping and bottom roping
  • Abseiling, and methods of safeguarding the abseil
  • What is involved in becoming a competent second (a second follows the leader)
