Climb Skills & Lead Skills Courses

Climbing Skills Course & Lead Climbing Skills Course

We’re pleased to announce a new set of climbing skills courses to help you progress your climbing.

Following feedback from our Beginners’ Climbing Course customers, as well as those joining us having learned to climb or boulder elsewhere, is that following those initial lessons, climbers are largely left to fend for themselves in terms of improving their climbing technique, well not any more!

We are pleased to introduce two new courses available at Reading Climbing Centre, Climb Skills Course and Lead Skills Course.

Climb Skills builds on all the safety and technique knowledge taught in the Beginners’ Climbing Course, but focuses entirely on your climbing technique. Running in the same format as the Beginners’ Course, Climb Skills teaches a host of practical technique and movement skills over three 2 hour sessions, including:

  • Footwork
  • Correct use of climbing holds
  • Body positioning & specific movement techniques
  • Advanced movement techniques
  • Climbing efficiently

The first Climb Skills courses are scheduled to run in March, and are available to book now! Courses cost £100 per person, running over three consecutive weeks.

Lead Skills builds on our already popular Learn to Lead course, but fulfilling the same function as Climb Skills, to teach the more advanced skills and techniques which will allow you to progress faster and develop better technique from the outset.

Running over two sessions, the course consolidates your learning ensuring you leave with genuinely usable lead climbing skills and techniques you will apply each and every time you get in the wall.

Lead Skills courses are available to book at times to suit you, and cost £150 for two people or £225 for three. Please contact us for more information!
