Rock climbing on real rock is an addictive, enjoyable activity that has many benefits, both physical and psychological. Our new Rock Skills courses are designed to provide structured training opportunities for people who want to learn more and become independent climbers. There are three different levels so that complete beginners and those with more experience can choose the most appropriate starting point.
People climb outdoors for many reasons and a significant motivating factor is the sense of freedom that you gain from exploring crags and routes that are new to you. Discovering new places and challenging yourself adds to the whole experience and within the UK and Ireland there are many rock types and crags to explore and enjoy with likeminded people.
Climbing partnerships forged during the early days of a climbing career are often friendships for life. Rock climbing can be an exciting and sometimes daunting prospect if you have never tried it before. The Rock Skills scheme has been developed by Mountain Training and is nationally accredited in the UK and Ireland. The courses are widely available and are delivered by approved course providers and tutors, who are all experienced and appropriately qualified.
Mountain Training Rock Skills courses provide a progressive introduction to the basic skills and techniques of rock climbing, which will help you stay safe, enjoy climbing to the full and provide the foundations required for participation and development of your own rock climbing activities. Your Rock Skills tutor will introduce you to the key technical skills in a progressive and well-structured format and provide you with safely managed opportunities to try them out at the crag.
