Intro to Rock Climbing

Snowdonia is an ideal location to try rock climbing for the first time as there are so many crags to choose from there is something to suit everyone. This two day course will start with the basics and aim to give you enough understanding to competantly climb with others and make safe decisions. We will aim to stay outdoors for the duration but occasionally use local climbing walls if appropriate.

Had an absolutely brilliant day climbing with Louise. She was patient, knowledgeable and informative and we couldn't have had a better day. My wife was somewhat nervous but was instantly put at ease by Louise's calm manner. Cant recommend highly enough, look forward to seeing you again in the future. Best wishes Richard and Sam :)
