Alpine Rope-work – UK based preparation

summer-alpineThis popular bespoke course can be run in the Lake District or Scotland using longer scrambles and easy long climbs to simulate routes of Alpine length.

This course is aimed at people who already have climbing experience but have not applied their skills to the longer routes of the Alps and beyond which often require a faster more efficient approach than the majority of our ‘pitched’ UK climbs.

The aim will be to explore the various techniques and skills that will allow fast and safe movement on longer routes, where, for example,  the terrain may require sections to be ‘pitched’ in the traditional way as well as easier sections where moving together with coils taken on the body will be required for speed.

All technical equipment can be supplied at no extra charge.

1:1 – £180
1:2 – £200

Note – We only run Alpine Rope-work courses at a 1:2 instructor client ratio max.  We can supply additional instructors for larger groups wanting Alpine Rope-work.

‘Having spend three days in the mountains with Paddy I’ve got to say he’s the best guide I’ve ever worked with. Everything was pitched perfectly for my individual level - the choice of climbs, the balance between learning and mileage on the crag, all suited my level of experience. In three days I went from never having climbed trad to leading VD, seconding HVS+ and ticking off a classic mountain route, all thanks to Paddy’s professionalism and enthusiasm. Can’t wait to get out there again!’
