2 Day ‘Solid Rock’ Progression Rock Climbing Course


This 2 day Rock climbing course is designed as a natural progression from our ‘Ready to Rock’ course. By the end of the 2 days out on real rock faces or crags you will be considered a competent second, meaning you will be able to follow a lead climber. You will have an understanding of traditional climbing equipment, anchor selection, and belay techniques. Ultimately you will be a safe climber on or around the crag.

It is important that all participants have some climbing experience, has completed our ‘Ready to Rock’ course or has indoor climbing experience and is looking to build on these skills.

Venue selection is between Hells Gate National Park and Lukenya, depending on which area is most convenient for the group. We tend to favour Lukenya for its good single pitch crags and connection to the Mountain Club of Kenya (MCK).
