BMC Ready to Rock

All our 2020 Ready to Rock courses have now run. We will be running more courses in 2021 - if you would like a similar intro to outdoor climbing, contact us and we'll see what we can do for you!

We are pleased to partner with the British Mountaineering Council to bring the BMC Ready to Rock courses to the South West. 

"Ready to Rock courses are designed to help indoor climbers make their first moves onto rock by having a fun day out as well as covering the use of some key skills and equipment. To take advantage of what is on offer you will need to have been climbing indoors a few times already. You will need to be able to put on and adjust a harness, tie in to the rope and belay a climbing partner. These courses are for people aged 18 or older." - The BMC.
