Climbing

The climbing bug can start at an early age with the scaling of trees or later perhaps at a local Climbing wall. We Are Adventurers offer a range of brilliant Instructor lead courses aimed at a variety of climbing standards. From complete beginner through to learning to lead in a safe environment.

Basic Crag Approach:

You will gain the basic skills of moving on rock, rope management, knots, belaying techniques as well as an insight to the various equipment on the market and their uses. This course will also teach you the fundamental basics in safety awareness and correct climbing etiquette to enable you to register confidently at the majority of the UK based climbing walls.

The day starts early and will be spent moving between various climbing crags to experience different types of climbing and techniques. The main focus is to hone safety skills and techniques whilst getting on as much rock as possible.

No previous experience is necessary, as all tuition is given on site.

Rock Classics:

An experienced Climber or recently completed the basic crag approach course? Then this day out on the classic climbs of your area may well suit you. Experience those climbs celebrated by all as the best climbs of their grade, locally and nationwide. Join an instructor as your guided through climbs that suit your level or experience those usually outside your scope in relative safety.

Previous experience or completion of the basic crag approach course is essential.

Crag Experience:

Want to push your climbing skills to the next level? On this course, we address the basic skills in lead climbing. Including different techniques like smearing and edging on slabs, jamming in chimneys and cracks, and mantle shelving and heel hooking to aid progression. We’ll teach you the appropriate protection needed when lead climbing. We devote a third of our course to practical skills and the rest to developing your knowledge.

Remember: practice is needed so don’t expect to master the skills the first time.

Safety comes first! That’s why at We Are Adventures we provide all the safety equipment needed so you can develop your skills worry free.
