Gym to Crag
Solid anchor building skills are a must for Climbers looking to head outdoors.
This course introduces confident gym climbers to the skills and knowledge required to top-rope outdoors. The course has two parts: an indoor session introducing key outdoor top-roping equipment and concepts, and an outdoor crag orientation, anchor building lesson and climbing session (usually the following day)!
