What is 'Trad' Climbing?


Trad Climbing is the traditional form of climbing and is the main focus within the UK. With this style of climbing the leader will typically place removable protection in cracks on the rock and attach the rope to these to protect themselves in the event of a fall. Unlike indoor climbing once at the top, the leader will create an anchor point to bring the second climber up to. 


The Course will give you information needed to make the step to leading traditional climbing routes. This course can include (but not limited too): equipment selection, venue choice, guidebook use/interpretation, 'racking a harness', placing effective protection, belaying, building anchors, retreat from a route, retrieving equipment.

A one day course will scratch the surface of the skills needed. A 2 day course will give a good in-depth knowledge of skills to go away and practice.

You'll need-

     - Climbing shoes

     - A suitable harness (please ask if unsure) 

     - Your own 'Rack' (should you own one)

     - Suitable clothing for the weather e.g.                                                       sunhat/waterproofs

     - Food and Drink

     - A rucksack for carrying equipment to and from the             crag
