Intro to climbing course

  • Overview
  • Our customers say

This Introduction to Climbing course is ideal for complete beginners with an aspiration to start rock climbing, and for indoor climbers looking to make the transition to climbing outdoors and develop their outdoor climbing skills. Upon completion of this course, climbers have a basic understanding of outdoor rock climbing.


It is completed in two days in the UK (Wye Valley or Peak District).


Another option is to fly to Spain and enjoy a long weekend or week's climbing holiday in the Costa Blanca. Our Long Weekend Climbing as well as our Sport Climbing Holidays in the Costa Blanca are open for beginners as well as experienced climbers. With an abundance of easy routes available to you, it is ideal for your first steps on real rock.

What is the next step in my climbing career


After completing this introductory climbing course, you might like to develop your skills further by learning to lead climb (clipping the rope in as you lead your way up a climbing route).


The Rock & Sun Learn to Lead - Sport course is the ideal next step, and can be completed over a weekend in the UK or during a week's holiday on the Costa Blanca. Other overseas locations are available at certain times of the year.


Are you already a competent indoor lead climber? And would like to do a one-day course to learn how to transfer those indoor lead climbing skills to the outdoors? Then we recommend our UK Outdoor partners at Undercover Rock who offer a one-day Introduction to Sports Climbing at Wyndcliff Quarry.
