Once these skills are in place we can look at a wide variety of topics depending on your preferences - sports climbing, traditional climbing including choosing and placing protection, multi-pitch routes or movement techniques.

We can take the course in any direction you want because we are fortunate enough to be based in an area with all types of climbing - single pitch, multi-pitch, sports, trad and even better these crags face all orientations from north facing crags at 1000m for sunny days to south facing sea level crags for cold, cloudy days.
