5 WEEK CLIMBING COURSES

£57 for members and UoB staff

£64 for non-members

£52 for students 

Each session is 90 minutes and all equipment is included. New participants can only join the course in week 1 or 2, after this the course will be closed to new participants.

 

Beginner: This five-week course is for those with no prior experience of climbing indoors. You will learn the basics of safe climbing on indoor walls, including the correct fitting of a harness, how to tie into the rope, how to use a belay device, and will learn and practice the basics of climbing movement. By the end of this course, you will be competent in the use of safety equipment for indoor climbing.

 

Intermediate: This five-week course is for competent climbers or those who have completed a previous beginner-level course. You will learn efficient climbing movement techniques, gain an understanding of the different hold types and their use, and how to `read` a route, as well as build confidence and stamina.

 

Advanced: This five-week course follows on from the intermediate course, completing the indoor climbing skill set. Those who haven’t attended the intermediate course but are already competent – such as indoor top rope climbers – are welcome to attend. We concentrate on learning how to lead climb (climbing a route without a rope above you, taking your own rope, and clipping it into the safety bolts as you go). Best practice is taught and consistent throughout.
