The Course

Brunel Climbing offers you a unique climbing course, the aim of which is to build up your climbing skills throughout the year to enable you to take part in outdoor trad multi-pitch climbing.
Throughout the year you will be introduced to different types of climbing, such as top-roping, sports leading, traditional leading (known as “trad”) and bouldering. So not only learn how to climb safely indoors, but also outdoors as well as advancing your personal ability and technique.

Because we know you’ve all got your own commitments, you don’t have to be here every week to join in with our course. You’ll get to learn pretty quickly what kind of lessons our fab instructor Tom offers, and then you just have to let him know a couple of days in advance what you want to do and when and find a buddy to join in.
