Sport Climbing (2 Days)
It's incredible to climb on sport. In a welcoming social setting, you can really concentrate on the pleasure of climbing and challenge yourself. Becoming a sport climber is the ideal move for the indoor climber who wants to go outdoors and have an adventure, or if you're someone who really loves climbing movement and a challenge. We strive to experience outdoor climbing in a number of venues, as well as equipping you with the instruments and methods for future sport climbing on your own. To get the most out of this course, we recommend that you are already a competent indoor lead climber at 6a or above.
