Sport Climbing Course
Across the whole of the UK there is a growing number of bolted sports climbs. If you want to bridge the gap between indoor and outdoor sport climbing, then this course will teach you all the essential sport climbing skills.
With the development of sport climbing across the country, there is now plenty of opportunity, both in the UK and abroad to go bolt clipping. It is also the easiest way to convert from indoor climbing to outdoor rock climbing, as such the popularity of sports climbing is on the rise.
This course will help you bridge the gap between indoor climbing and sports climbing on real rock. As such one of the first things we get you to do is start climbing and work on your technique so it is more attuned to the challenges of climbing on real rock. Due to the ease of transistion, we will quickly move you onto lead climbing, and teach you all about clipping quickdraws quickly and efficiently. We will also show you how to minimise the risks involved by showing you how to clip the first bolt with a clip stick and how to adjust the rope so that the rope stays clipped to the first bolt it other people want to lead.
On the following days we then work more and more on your technique with a focus on making improvements and working up through the grades. Including how to practice a route quickly and efficiently and prepare to lead climb it after this practice, in a skill called redpointing. Dependent on your level and ability we can also help you with mental skills to help you stay focused, relaxed and determined on the hardest of route.
By the time you finish the course you'll be confident in leading sports climbs within your grade, as well as willing and equipped to push yourself in a safe and appropriate manner.
