Participants should have some previous climbing experience and a reasonable level of fitness to attend this Next Step Rockclimbing Skills course .
Students should be happy fitting their own equipment, tying in and belaying. Previous climbing experience could be either on the crag, indoor wall or on the Tollymore First Step Rock Climbing Skill course .
This Next Step Rockclimbing Skills course aims to give participants the skills to become much more independent and safer rock climbers.
No longer will you rely on others to check everything for you. After this course you should have a truly in depth understanding of the rock climbing systems.
We will look at everything from finding the right route and understanding the subtleties of the grades to setting up climbers belay systems and placing protection at the belay and on the route.
As with all Tollymore courses we will be flexible. Participants input and needs will play an integral part of the course plan and as such their needs will be considered at every stage.
This Next Step Rockclimbing Skills course is for those with some previous rock climbing experience. You may be a regular user of climbing walls, but have never progressed beyond the basics or you may have been on an First Step Rock Climbing Skills course but have always wanted a more comprehensive insight into the skills required to develop further. You need a reasonable level of fitness.
