All of our climbing programs start with a brief (15-20 minute) lesson that covers basic belay skills and climbing safety. Participants then have the remaining time to apply these skills and climb.  In lessons longer than 1.5 hours we can include additional rope skills, movement lessons and/or rappelling, on request.

Crack Climbing, Trad and Rock Rescue courses are also available for group bookings.


After learning bouldering safety and falling techniques (5 minutes) participants receive free bouldering time as well as directed movement lesson(s) supported by engaging games and challenges.
