5 Day Rock Foundation Course


The Rock Climbing Foundation Course is designed for novice climbers to learn all the skills required to become a rock climber and be safe at the crag. Climbers will spend a lot of time on rock so they really get a chance to enjoy the sport whilst learning.

No previous experience is required, yet a desire to learn and push yourself is extremely important.

The aim is develop a solid foundation in core rock climbing techniques, whilst climbing a variety of single pitch climbs. You will end the course a competent second and ready for further climbing.

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).
