    Would you like to give your first climbing steps onto real rock in North Wales? If you already have experience as an indoor climber, then join me on this 2-day basic rock climbing course. This is the perfect opportunity for you to go from indoor to outdoor climbing!

    North Wales and Snowdonia offer some of the best rock climbing areas in the UK. Also, it’s easy accessible and you can find here a great diversity and styles of rock climbing.

    During this 2-day rock climbing course, you will learn how to set up top ropes, build anchors and place protection. Also, the program can be extended to 5 days. This way, you could move to multi-pitch routes.

    By the end of this 2 days, you will know how to lead a climb and how to climb on different rock types. Also, you will learn to second a single pitch route, how to start building anchors and to place natural gear.

    Most important, you will put all you learn into good use! The course program is the following:

    Day 1-content:

    • How to belay on single pitch crags
    • Using a guidebook. ‘Bomber’ gear emplacement
    • Set ups of top and bottom rope
    • Tying into anchors at the top of crags.
    • Climbing!

    Day 2-content:

    • More climbing
    • How to build belays, managing and setting up an abseil.
    • Basic principles of a leader’s rack.

    So, by the end of the program, you may have led your first climb! Please note that in order to join this course you need indoor climbing experience, but no outdoor experience is required.

    Want to join me and start climbing on real rock? Then contact me and I will give you more information. I assure it will be a great experience! Also, feel free to contact me if you are looking for a more customized course.

    You can also take a look at my multi-pitch climbing course and the self-rescue course for climbers. And if you have little or no climbing experience, I also offer a rock climbing 2-day introductory course.

    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!
