Ready to Rock courses are designed to help indoor climbers make their first moves onto rock by having a fun day out as well as covering the use of some key skills and equipment. To take advantage of what is on offer you will need to have been climbing indoors a few times already. You will need to be able to put on and adjust a harness, tie in to the rope and belay a climbing partner. These courses are for people aged 18 or older.

KEY INFORMATION

What do they cover?

A variety of topics will be covered during the day as well as offering a fun taster to outdoor climbing. Topics may include:

> Types of trad climbing equipment

> Placing good protection

> Building good belays

> Using guidebooks

> Seconding/top roping 

 

Who are they for?

These courses are ideal for novice climbing club members, students, parents and individuals who may have had the odd taster of climbing outdoors and wish to gain key safety skills at an excellent price. They may also be a good precursor for people contemplating the Single Pitch Award training.

 

Who will be the instructing?

The instructors for these courses will hold an MIA or MIC and be members of the AMI. The name of the instructor delivering the course can be found next to the venue they are delivering the course.
