    If you have little or no rock climbing experience then I have the perfect opportunity for you. I invite you to join me on a great 2-day introductory rock climbing course in North Wales. You will acquire the basic skills you need to climb inside and out!

    In North Wales you can find the best rock climbing areas in the UK!  I will take you to great climbing spots and we’ll have an amazing time. Also, it’s easily accessible!

    What will you learn? How to put on a harness, how to tie belay, knots and abseil. Besides, if we have enough time, I will introduce building anchors and placing protections. Also, how to set up top and bottom ropes.

    My goal is that you gain the key skills you need to climb. So, you will be able to put on a harness and a helmet and tie in to a rope. Also, you will get to the top of some climbs, and so much more! Most important, when we finish you should have the abilities to enrol at any indoor climbing wall.

    The rock climbing course for beginners content is the following:

    Day 1

    • Using of personal equipment, helmet, harness, etc
    • Personal movement and climbing skills.
    • Basic rope work introduction
    • Abseiling
    • Single pitch climbing

    Day 2

    • Access information and use of a guidebook
    • Building your own anchors and placing gear
    • More climbing, belaying and abseiling.
    • Where to go next?

    So, if you find this proposal interesting, then contact me for more information! I will answer any questions you may have about this course.

    If you already have indoor climbing experience, you can check my 2-day indoor to outdoor rock climbing course. Also, I offer a multi-pitch climbing course and a self-rescue course for climbers.

    About the Guide


    Since I was a child I have enjoyed and practiced mountain activities, like mountaineering, climbing and hiking. Today I hold a Mountain Instructor Certificate (MIC), the highest instructional qualification in the UK for mountain guides. Also, I am a full member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI), an organisation that represents professional mountaineers within the UK.

    I am passionate about climbing, whether it's delivering scrambling or climbing courses or leading a day out. We have so many amazing venues and routes to choose from in North Wales!

    I live in the heart of the beautiful Snowdonia National Park, the largest national park in Wales. My home is close to amazing rock climbing venues, where I usually take my clients. Besides, I often deliver National Governing Body Awards, such as Winter and Summer Mountain Leader courses. Also, Single Pitch Award climbing courses. They all run under the UK’s Mountain Training Association.

    Please feel free to get in touch with me! You can tell me about your wishes and we can talk about the different options I offer. I will be really happy to be your guide!
