First off you'll be briefed on safety and basic climbing techniques, before you learn the fundamentals of abseiling including how to tie in, belay, and the moves you need to scale the aretes, slabs, overhangs and grooves on your way to the top - all with constant encouragement and supervision from your expert instructors. You're in for a challenging, exciting and fun time - and you'll be amazed at what you can achieve.
