This course is aimed at people that already have some experience of rock climbing and are able to ‘second’ routes competently. They also should know how to belay from both above and below an anchor. You will find that our 3 days Trad Climbing Course will provide you with all the tools you need to learn how to confidently trad lead climb. Once you have completed our trad climbing course, you will leave us knowing where and how to place trad climbing protection such as nuts, cams and hexes and of course how to remove them. You will have led your first trad lead climb, build anchors and belays and will have been reunited with your partner as they second beneath you. Trad lead climbing is a continuos learning curve and our course will set you on the right path to further your experience when you venture off and climb along your climbing partner.
Our courses run from Cadiz province, either in the Sierra de Grazalema or in the surrounding area of Tarifa (the tip of Europe), where you will be able to enjoy stunning landscapes while climbing with very few people (on weekdays we will probably climb alone!). Our experienced and qualified climbing guide is an expert on the area, has written several climbing guide books and opened hundreds of bolted and trad routes.
Included in the price are airport transfers from Seville, Jerez and Gibraltar (Malaga airport has a Surcharge), all the material (except your climbing shoes), accommodation (3 nights) in a rural cottage and transfers to the climbing area. Climbing shoes, food, drinks and personal insurance are not included. We will need a minimum of two people to run the course, so get your climbing partner to come along! If you would like to stay longer at the accommodation there will be an additional cost per night.
Are you looking to improve your skills and /or learn new ones but would like to do a shorter or longer course than advertised here? No problem, we will fully tailor a course to fit your needs, so just drop us a line to help us plan your perfect course.
