March – April 2020 (dates TBC)
This 4 week module is a great introduction to rock climbing. With a mix of coached sessions and personal climbing time, indoors and outdoors, as well as our in-house learn to lead courses and a week away climbing somewhere in the UK (depending on weather conditions), this is a fabulous module to prepare for and take part in the RCI Training. Based at the Abernethy School of Adventure Leadership with its own amazing indoor climbing wall, a stones throw from Ben Nevis and the Glencoe there is no better location for some quality outdoor adventures!
