Rock Monkeys 1&2
For those who are brand new to Rock Monkeys or are working towards their level 1 or 2.
This group is all about the grass-roots of climbing. By the time a child has finished our level 1&2 course they will have the skills to use the centre safely and understand how to use all the climbing equipment for top rope climbing.
These are the essential skills and good-habits that will provide them with a safe and fulfilling climbing career. They will also be able to complete a large number of climbs as they build up their strength and confidence on our wide variety of routes.
When new Rock Monkeys join level 1 & 2 they will need to purchase a NICAS book from our reception. This helps both them and instructors to record their progress.
How Much? £12 per session (number of weeks, therefore price per term may vary). Please note these sessions are fixed once booked and are non refundable or transferable.
Instructor ratio? 1:6
Estimated completion time – A minimum of 12 weeks, although often more weeks are required
Some of the skills that will be covered:
- Rules and conditions of using a climbing centre
- Building confidence in the equipment, the instructors and the rest of the group
- Learning how to climb routes and how to come down from routes
- Safe and proper use and knowledge of a variety of indoor climbing equipment
