Outdoor Climbing Course 3/3 – Alpine Rock Climbing

Step outside this Summer and sign up for our 3 series of Learn Rock Climbing in Switzerland Course.

 

You will learn new skills, discover beautiful climbing spots, and find the joy in outdoor rock climbing. These courses are aimed at you becoming a more confident climber.

Trips are led by one of our Touring Monkeys Climbing Instructor and International Mountain Leader, Tim Dunham.

Course 3 – Alpine Rock Climbing

Contents of the course

Apply your newly acquired skills from courses 1 & 2 at an Alpine Rock Climbing weekend.

This is the trip at the end of the season when it all comes together, by practising your lead climbing, belaying and anchor skills in a high-altitude setting.

We’ll stay overnight in a mountain hut with access to climbing routes right out the front.

Event Dates

Requirements

Participation in Course 2 – Lead Sport Climbing, Belaying and Anchors, or previous experience with outdoor lead climbing.

Kit list

What’s the plan?

Tim will meet the group at Golzern, Talstation Seilbahn at 10:15. We will either hike all the way up or take the gondola up to Golzern and hike to Windgällenhütte. We will be able to drop some of our stuff at the hut before walking to one of the many crags around it. There we will refresh what we learned in course 2, enjoy some alpine climbing and acquire more advanced skills.

We will enjoy the evening with good conversation, a nice dinner and wine, and stay overnight at this lovely hut.

After breakfast on Sunday, we will continue to explore the climbing area and practice the skills we learned on Saturday, this time on a different crag. After a second full day of climbing, we will find our way back to the train station.
