Intro to Sport Climbing

Get started

Outdoor sport climbing

Are you a competent indoor lead climber looking for a new challenge? How do you thread the anchor and clean a route? Learn everything you need to know to go sport climbing outdoors.

Led by one of our qualified and experienced instructors, our outdoor climbing courses will teach you all you need to know to make the step into great outdoors and go sport climbing. Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll have the ability to climb at any single pitch sport crag around the world. This could be the start of many exceptional climbing adventures.

This course is delivered over 2 sessions: the first is at The Church climbing centre in Bristol and the second is held at the stunning Wyndcliff Quarry, less than an hour from Chippenham in the beautiful Wye Valley – during the warmest months. Wyndcliff is a set of sunny crags with amazing views over the Severn estuary; there couldn’t be a more perfect spot to learn to sport climb.
