This is the Course i did to transfer from climbing in a gym to outdoors. I have a friend that i climb with outdoors too but wanted to be sure that i had my own knowledge and get some good experience so we are safe when climbing outdoors! ( A lot different than in a climbing Gym! )

There is a lot to take in when transferring from a gym to outdoors, no more colored hand holds, and shelter from the weather! But welcome to the great outdoors, beautiful views, fresh air, using gear you set up yourself, opens up so many different climbing crags and places to go!

Notes I didn’t get to do Top belay because of so much rain, glasshouse mountains trying to reschedule to a new date.

Really enjoyed this course with Paul from Pinnacle sports, the other students were friendly too, i recommend this course if you are trying to do outdoor rock climbing or abseiling. This course covers everything from the basics to in detail and they are more than happy to help with finding the correct gear and any questions you have. Two full days of hands on Rock climbing and abseiling, learning while having fun, i learnt so much in these two days !
