"The instructors were very good giving great technical advice throughout the course. The range of walls was great, especially on the second day. I would really recommend this course."

"I heard such great things about this company that both my friend and I travelled interstate just to join the Rock 1 course with them. I enjoyed myself so much over the weekend that I extended my trip and joined another traveller on the Rock 3 course immediately after."

More and more women are drawn to climbing, and it’s easy to understand why. The Women’s Rock Climbing course has a strong focus on technique to help you get up climbs you never thought possible. Our focus is purely on women's strengths to ensure you get the most out of the weekend & your future climbing endeavors!
Your female climbing instructors will start with the basics from safety and equipment, to belaying and rope skills. They will progress you through climbing techniques to encourage efficiency, energy conservation, and fluidity. Over the two days you will climb varying route styles to develop techniques and challenge yourself.
Whether you are completely new to climbing, or you climb in a gym and want to make the transition to climbing on real rock, this course will teach you the fundamentals of rock climbing. It’s also a great opportunity to make new climbing connections with other women.
The Women's Rock Climbing course will teach you the necessary skills required to:
- Understand and utilise your individual strengths
- Select, fit and use climbing equipment
- Tie the essential knots for climbing
- Set up a belay anchor
- Safely belay your climbing partner with correct "5 step" technique
- Communicate clearly with your climbing partner
- Safely lower your climbing partner off rock climbs
- Use hand & footholds efficiently
- Move your body to maximise upward progression

- Plus much more!
Throughout the first day your instructors will accompany you on a special selection of graduated climbs. Our focus is to get you on the rock and progress from easy to more challenging climbs. We utilise many climbs and have something for all skill levels!
The second day of the course is devoted solely to the simple joys of climbing, with your instructor aiming to take you on as many varied climbs as possible. The object will be to learn and develop your skills and techniques as you climb!
This is the ideal course for the beginner or indoor gym climber who wants to make the transition to real rock- After this course you will be able to competently climb with experienced leaders on short moderately graded rock climbs.
