If you’ve ever wondered why we come back from meets with big smiles on our faces, you just have to try this. Come and join us at Portland for a day of finding out what being on real rock is all about. We will have a whole day of ‘giving it a go’. It’ll be quite a relaxed one with plenty of chance to ask for hints and tips. It’s simply a chance to practice real outdoor climbing on the south coast.

It’s a beautiful place to start to learn. There will be loads of us there setting up top ropes and providing guidance. We can run through specific skills people may want to learn more about such as technique, leading and safety essentials.

This is a great place to get the chance to try it out. And if you do get jealous of all those outdoor meets we go on, this is the perfect place to start.

Essential equipment:

  • Harness
  • Shoes
  • Spare pair of trousers (if you think you’ll need them)
  • a strong drink (optional) and some food
  • Ideally a helmet if you have one or can borrow one. There are 2 spare club helmets if anyone is really stuck, so if you don’t have one, don’t let this put you off.

Meeting point: the exact place to meet will be confirmed nearer the time.

See you there!
