Trad Climbing Courses

Pembrokeshire Rock Climbing Courses

Pembroke Sea Cliff Climbing 

This weekend saw Climb Pembroke running another BMC course on Sea Cliff Improvised Rescue training, for affiliate club members in North Pembrokeshire. Eight participants spent the weekend looking at various skills that can sort out minor problems, to full blown epics. The more I run these type of courses, the more I realise that these skills are so vital to climbers taking them selves into committing areas. Thanks everyone for coming and I hope you all feel a lot happier with your future climbing. 

Yesterday I was out with Alice, who wanted to brush up on her rope work and anchor set ups (also in North Pembrokeshire), Porthclais was heaving with groups, so we headed to a little known spot a short walk further on, to go through skills for the day. As with the rescue weekend, the weather was great and there were times I felt a bit too hot... Nice one Alice, it was great to catch some rays with you while boosting skills! 

Three Day Adventure Skills Course

Intro to Trad, Multi Pitch and Lead Climbing

I was joined three days ago by Sammy and Luca, who were keen to get a good introduction to what trad climbing was all about. I had been out with them before on a Sport Climbing course so it was great to catch up with them again and this time get on the trad! 

The first day was spend journeying about on the largest crag in the Penally area and passing on trad seconding skills. The second day was spent on the non bird banned section of Stackpole Head and Mowingword covering belay building, stance management and bringing up seconds. Today was their lead course, which was delivered at Giltar Slabs above a wild sea! Good luck with your future trad climbing guys...
