No prerequisites other than a reasonable level of fitness and an interest in trying a new experience under safe expert guidance is required for this First Step Rockclimbing Skills.
This First Step Rockclimbing Skills course would also be ideal for indoor climbing wall users who want to get outside on real rock.
‘First Step’ Rock Climbing is an introduction to rock climbing with an emphasis on moving on the rock and climbing a number of classic Mourne rock routes. Our top level staff will be ensuring you get the benefit of all their experience whilst imparting loads of skills and tips along the way in a safe environment.
This First Step Rockclimbing Skills course is ideal for anyone, young or old, who has ever looked up at the rock faces and wondered what it would be like to actually climb on them and get their hands dirty on the finest Mourne Granite.
Only a basic level of fitness required, and don’t worry about a head for heights we’ll look after that bit.
Bring any of your own personal hillwalking outdoor clothing and kit such as, waterproof jacket and trousers, boots, fleece jacket, hat and gloves, flask, water bottle, and spare clothes. It’s best to bring plenty of lighter layers and avoid cotton if possible as it offers little heat and takes ages to dry out if wet or sweaty.
Tollymore can supply most of the equipment you require for this course but it is preferable to use your own were possible even if it’s just a chance for your instructor to comment on your kit and give advice.
Equipment, in-course transport, instruction and a packed lunch.
