For people with a desire to learn to climb or those who wish to improve their climbing, but do not have the time available to attend our programmed courses, a private session with an instructor may be for you.
These sessions are designed with maximum flexibility to meet your requirements and the time you have available. The content will be tailored to your specific needs; whether that is just getting started, learning more advanced techniques, improving your ropework or learning to become a more confident and able abseiler.
It may also be that group learning doesn't work specifically for you and that you (and maybe a friend) would feel more confident learning in a one-to-one situation.
For guidance we have streamlined the private sessions into the following categories, (although each session is run exactly as you want it):
A private session focusing on climbing instruction. The session is tailored to what you want to learn and can be run for just one person or in small groups. This could be a one-off session or a series of sessions. (Please note it will take longer than just one hour for beginners to learn to climb).
You can book a one-off session with one of our coaches to assess your climbing technique and come up with a plan to tackle your weaknesses and achieve your goals.
For longer term development, we offer ongoing sessions with your coach to develop and follow up on your personalised training plan.
"Booking the lesson was a simple process and the reception staff were very friendly...we both had a great time and felt that the hour's tuition was great value for money." Ian R.
