The Women's Ready to Rock course is designed to help women indoor climbers to 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 best advantage of these courses, some prior indoor climbing experience would be useful. You will need to be able to put on and adjust a harness, tie in to the rope and belay a climbing partner.

Course Content

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 is it for?

The Women's Ready to Rock course is ideal for novice climbing club members, students, parents and individuals. Climbers who may have had the odd taster of climbing outdoors and who wish to gain further knowledge and skills. You should already know how to put on a harness, tie in to a rope and belay.  This is a good precursor for anyone contemplating further training; such as a Rock Skills course.

These courses are for women aged 18 or older. More Ready To Rock courses, catering for more people, can be found below:
