Women’s Rock Climbing Course North Wales

How often have you been the only woman on a course? How often has your instructor been male too? Most of the time, I am guessing. Although it is nice to climb with our male friends, men and women are often very different in size, strength and the way they think. This course aims to give you something different by providing an all female group so that you can get taught techniques to suit your size in a way that suits you. 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 competently climb with others and make safe decisions. We will aim to stay outdoors for the duration but occasionally use local climbing walls if appropriate.

What will I learn on this climbing course for women?

As with all of our courses the teaching will be geared to suit individual needs so course content may vary but examples of aspects covered are:

  • Equipment.
  • Climbing etiquette/calls.
  • Use of guide books.
  • Belaying (looking after the climber using a rope).
  • Movement skills.
  • Bottom roping/top roping systems.
  • Abseiling.
  • Risk assessments.
  • Seconding a climb and removing gear.

Hi Lou, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a great day on Monday. Both Helen and I had a brilliant time, and learnt a vast amount. We thought your choice of venue was perfect for us, as we got the chance to practice loads without a lot of walking, or scaring ourselves on any difficult terrain! We're both very keen to come back when we've consolidated our new knowledge, and learn even more. Thanks again Rachel ps. the picture on facebook is brilliant! Thanks!
