/ Summer Climbing Courses
Despite the poor start to the summer, we are hoping and praying for better weather over the coming months and would love you to coming and join us on one of our amazing climbing courses.
Based in Llanberis, the heart of rock climbing in Snowdonia and North Wales, the courses are designed to help you improve your climbing whatever level you are at. As such we run a variety of courses from an introduction to trad climbing right the way through to Performance Coaching.
Our courses are run by Mark Reeves, a highly experienced Mountaineering Instructor who also holds an MSc in Applied Sports Science with effective coaching. Mark also wrote the self-coaching book “How to Climb Harder” for Pesda Press. This enables Mark to identify your weaknesses and work on your techniques, tactics and mental approach to rock climbing, as well as covering the more conventional ropework and safety skills. This is achieved by setting up effective practice for you to learn these new skills in a controlled setting before helping you apply them to climbing at your limit.
This summer we have many courses running, below are a selection.
Lead Climbing Coaching 21st-22nd July - £250
Intro to Lead Climbing 23rd -27th July - £250
Sea Cliff Climbing Course 30th July – 3rd August - £500

Part-time Fast Track Instructor Course
If you'd fancy becoming an rock climbing and mountain instructor then next year we are introducing a great new course that has all the benefits of a fast-track course, without the need to quit your job. We achieve this by running the course over weekends, with only a few days occuring during the week. Meaning that if your 9 to 5 is getting you down and you want to explore a new career then this might be you ticket into the industry. The course is scheduled to start in January 2012.
