Rock climbing is very different from indoors climbing that’s why we will focus on all aspects involved on outdoor climbing for you to be able to climb with autonomy.
Gym to Crag focus on two main aspects: climbing in a new surface and rope management plus safety skills. Over the minimum of two days we will work this two main subjects switching from one to the other to make the course more dynamic and enjoyable.
Another important thing about this course is that you will have the possibility to climb on different types of rock, conglomerate and limestone. It’s and excellent opportunity to practice all different sorts of climbing: slab, steep, crack, dihedral and different types of holds. This will allow to quickly progress and improve your confidence climbing on the rock.
