Introduction:

Are you ready for an adventure that will take you to new heights? If you’re an aspiring climber, look no further than Almscliffe Crag! Our Climbing Discovery event is the perfect opportunity to experience the excitement of bouldering, abseiling, and climbing at one of Yorkshire’s most iconic crags.

Safety First:

At Climbing Discovery, we prioritise safety above all else. Before we begin climbing, we’ll start with confidence-building exercises on boulders and small rocks to help you develop your gritstone movement and build your skills. We’ll cover a wide range of climbing techniques, from easy angled slab climbs to steeper routes and challenging rock features. You’ll learn how to climb using different body positions and how to use your hands and feet to balance and move across the rock. You’ll also learn the importance of proper equipment, knot-tying, belaying, and abseiling, as well as essential safety tips for climbing outdoors.

Expert Instruction:

As a Rock climbing instructor and coach Harry will guide you through every step of the way, helping you to gain confidence and movement on the rock. They’ll also share their knowledge of Almscliffe Crag’s geology, history, and ecology, and how it has become one of the most popular climbing destinations in Yorkshire.

Expanding Your Knowledge:

But Climbing Discovery is not just about mastering the physical aspect of climbing. It’s also about expanding your knowledge and appreciation of the sport. You’ll learn about climbing ethics and etiquette, such as how to minimize your impact on the environment and how to respect other climbers on the crag. You’ll also learn about the different types of climbing, such as sport climbing, traditional climbing, and bouldering, and how to choose the right equipment for each type.

Abseiling:

In addition to climbing, you’ll also have the opportunity to try abseiling, which is descending down a cliff or crag using ropes and specialized equipment. Abseiling is an essential skill for climbers, if needing to retreat from longer routes or to retrieve gear, and our instructors will teach you how to do it safely and efficiently.

Equipment:

We’ll provide all the necessary equipment, including harnesses, helmets, ropes, and climbing shoes, but feel free to bring your own gear if you prefer. Just make sure it’s in good condition and suitable for outdoor climbing. Let us know your kit requirements beforehand.

Aims:

Climbing Discovery is designed to be a fun and safe introduction to gritstone climbing, as well as an opportunity to expand your climbing knowledge and experience. Our instructors are experienced climbers themselves, and they’ll provide expert guidance and support throughout the event. You’ll leave the event with newfound skills, confidence, and appreciation for the beauty and excitement of rock climbing.

So what are you waiting for? Join us at Almscliffe Crag for a Climbing Discovery adventure that you’ll never forget!
