    Would you like to climb autonomously on multi-pitch routes? Then join me on this 2-day multi-pitch climbing course in North Wales and learn all you need to know to do it!

    North Wales offers amazing climbing spots. Furthermore, you’ll find here some of the best rock climbing areas in the UK. Besides, you can experience a great diversity and styles of rock climbing and it’s also easily accessible!

    I have designed this program for climbers who already can lead a climb but haven’t still ventured onto multi-pich routes. So, this is the perfect opportunity to learn what it’s all about.

    Also, finding a route may be an issue when you climb multi-pitch routes. So, I will explain what you need to know about this.

    Besides, North Wales offers lots of multi-pitch routes! I will take you to great climbing spots during our training.

    During this 2-day course you will develop your skills in building appropiate and safe belays. Most important, you will get the skills you need to go autonomously on multi-pitch routes.

    On Day 1, you will climb your first multi-pitch route. I will teach you how to choose a suitable route and explain what you need to know about route finding. Also, you will learn about building and attaching to belays and placing gear.

    On Day 2, you will have the possibility to have a go at multi-pitch leading, if you feel confident as a single pitch leader. We will also go over a key point in multi-pitch climbing: how to place gear correctly to protect the second and also the leader. Also, I will explain how to set up an abseil retreat.

    If you want to join this course you need to have some prior outdoor lead climbing experience. Also, you should be familiar with the basics.

    So contact me if you want to venture yourself into multi-pitch climbing! I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program.

    And if you’re still not ready for multi-pitch routes, I also offer a 2-day indoor to outdoor rock climbing course. Check it out!

    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!
