Intro to Rock Climbing and Abseiling – 2 Days February 16, 2019

This is a two day outdoor climbing course delivered at two of Christchurch’s best outdoor climbing areas.

In this course we will introduce you to the world of outdoor top-rope rock climbing. We will  look at personal safety, good belay techniques, communication and personal climbing skills.

This is a popular course for those who have limited rock climbing experience and would like to get some professional guidance. This course is appropriate for people that have no experience and would just like to give it a go.
