Not enough time to do a one-day Climbing Taster with Rock and Sun? Then we recommend our UK Outdoor partner Undercover Rock who offer 2/3 hour Outdoor Taster Sessions in the Avon Gorge (evenings) and Wyndcliff Quarry (Saturdays).
After having had a first try at rock climbing outdoors during a rock climbing taster day, you might like to learn how to climb on your own – independent of an instructor. The next step towards that would be to take the 2-day Introduction to Climbing course with Rock and Sun – and allow us to teach you the essential basics of rock climbing (or you might choose to start with this course straight away).
