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.
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
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. You should already know how to put on a harness and belay.
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.
Courses cost only £60 per person.We normally have a maximum of 8 places on these days but due to CV-19 the numbers will likely be reduced and will depend on government guidance at the time. It is also possible to have the instructor to yourself for the day, you can contact the instructor via the email links below to discuss this option.
The course will run from 10.00 am until 17.00 pm
Email the instructor running the course with the date and venue and they will arrange your booking. See below.

As the climbing walls, crags and mountains start to open, we wanted to say thanks to every BMC member who supported us through the Coronavirus crisis.
From weekly Facebook Lives and GB Climbing home training videos, to our access team working to re-open the crags and fight for your mountain access, we couldn’t have made it without you.
