Northumberland is home to many great crags all with very different characteristics and spectacular views. A session with us includes training, tackling the climbs and time for rest and relaxation. This is definitely an activity you don't want to miss out on. Generally sessions take place at Corby Crag near Alnwick, but occassionally at Bowden Doors or for school groups on the sandstone rocks at Howick.
We can offer an introductory session for beginners to the sport that will include:
- Correctly fitting a harness
- Tying knots
- Equipment used
- Creating an anchor
There will be an opportunity to climb several routes of varying difficulty and we will even try to explain how climbs are graded.
If you are a more experienced climber or want to transistion from indoors to trad climbing then sessions can be tailored to your needs.
