RealRock –  Trad Taster

Trad Taster sessions are perfect for anyone who wants to know more about trad climbing.

Just want a day out experiencing trad climbing with an experienced coach? This is the session for you. We run these days at a 1:2 ratio and the focus is as simple as heading to a trad crag and getting loads of climbing in. The focus here isn’t on becoming a lead climber, rather becoming a competent ‘second’. With a smaller ratio, we generally don’t setup top-ropes on these days and instead your coach will lead up routes with you following behind on the safety of a top-rope. This is what would usually happen when climbers go to a crag for the day.

Participants must be able to put on a harness, tie a figure of eight knot and competently bottom-rope belay another climber. Some experience of lead climbing is useful but not essential.
