Climbing Courses

Introduction to Rock-Climbing

If you would love to climb, but have no idea where to begin, then this is the course for you.  We will take you right through the basics of rock-climbing and abseiling, step by step, enabling you to have a safe and enjoyable experience whilst taking in the spectacular Cornish scenery.

Learn to Lead

Learn to lead climb with the confidence of having an expert eye overseeing your every move!

The instruction will be tailored to your individual needs, whether these are the basics, such as tying in and clipping your first runner, through to more complicated aspects, such as using twin ropes, climbing as a party of three, or multi pitch climbing.  We aim to give you the experience and confidence to tackle routes of your choice and aspirations, safely from the ground up.
