For many who wish to try indoor climbing, there is often a sense of feeling unsure about how to get started. What equipment do I need? Should I join a club or get on a climbing taster session?
An introduction to climbing course is an excellent place to begin.
Rock climbing is not only a great for your muscles it increases your strength, endurance and will improve your general fitness but it’s also a lot of fun! Rock climbing, even indoors, is exciting, will take you out of your comfort zone and challenge you in a way very few other sports can. It’s also a great way to meet people and is a much more sociable way of exercising than a lonely trip to the gym.
Is it safe?
Although rock climbing can be a risky activity when done incorrectly, with good instruction and the proper equipment, it can be a safe, enjoyable sport for adults and kids alike.
What should I wear?
Any sports or loose fitting comfortable clothing works well. Stretchy jeans can be comfortable but can get quite hot. We would recommend you wear something you don’t mind getting dirty or scuffed.
Our course runs for 6 hours and this is split into four one and a half hour sessions over four days.
This will be done over four weeks.
The course is suitable for anyone aged 18 and up.
On our Introduction to Climbing course you will learn about the equipment used in indoor climbing, how to belay, tie the basic knots, basic rope technique and of course how to climb, with plenty of climbing time to practice everything. We will spend time in both the main climbing wall the bouldering room.
At the end of the course there will be a basis assessment and if successful you will then be signed off as a competent climber, which will enable you to climb at The Rock climbing wall independently of instructors, you will also be able to sign in and be responsible for up to two novice climbers.
