This rock climbing course over two days is for young people aged 12-17. Ideally you will have experience climbing on indoor walls. This course is designed to make the connection and to bridge between indoor and outdoor climbing. Our friendly, enthusiastic and highly qualified and experienced instructors will help you develop your skills climbing outside and become self-sufficient as the camp progresses. We will show you how to climb the different types of routes, develop your technique and how to deal with a variety of different challenges unique to outdoor climbing.
We will be based on the Isle of Portland in Dorset. There are a huge number of single pitch routes to develop your outdoor climbing skills at a variety of venues nearby. We will teach you to belay safely, make sure you can tie in correctly and use your equipment efficiently.
