Who is ‘Rock Improver’ for?
This course is for people who have some rock climbing experience outside and wish to brush up on their skills. You may be a competent second wanting to further your judgement skills and move on to leading, or you may have been a regular climber in the past and want to brush up and reassure yourself that you are doing things properly.
This course can be a 1 day refresher, a weekend or a 5 day course.
