Indoor to Outdoor Conversion

Need to feel the sun at your back and the wind in your hair?  This is the course for climbers who are dreaming of the great outdoors or have made the transition and want to solidify their skills.  Learn the ropes and take your climbing outside on this single pitch sport climbing course.

It just felt like we were out there with a mate that was good at climbing, it was very personalised.  Our instructor asked us what we wanted to get out of the weekend and made sure he ticked those boxes.  We all got exactly what we wanted – Matt, Indoor to Outdoor Conversion, 2015
