One of our most popular courses, this is ideal for any climber with some top-rope climbing experience who would like to start lead climbing outdoors on single-pitch sport routes. You'll build on your existing top-roping skills, or your existing indoor lead climbing skills. During the course you will develop the confidence to become competent in leading new and exciting sport climbs outdoors.

 

The lead climbing skills you learn on this course will also enable you to lead climb on indoor walls. is needed for this course. The course can be completed over a weekend in the UK or during a week's holiday on the Costa Blanca.

 

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.

 

Next steps in your climbing career

 

Once you've completed this course, there are a number of options to progress your rock climbing. A common desire of climbers at this level is to learn how to lead up traditional climbs (placing your own protection into the rock). Once you have the skills to be an independent trad climber, a whole range of unbolted climbing destinations within the UK will open up to you.

 

You might also like to use your skills on a guided rock climbing holiday abroad to experience new heights in exhilarating, sunny locations.
