Climbing / Abseiling Skills Course


Introductory outdoor rock climbing and abseiling course for recreational climbers Includes basic vertical rescue skills.

Your instructor will be following a system which ensures that you are introduced to new skills in the proper sequence. Learning is progressive – building from simple skills to more complex skills.
