CrossFit Climbing can help anyone who likes climbing but finds it very hard to climb steep mountains and small mountains alike, you can start slowly and build your strength. The beauty about doing CrossFit training is you work all your muscles, if you climb and each time you do a climbing session you find yourself struggling then you should take up CrossFit.
Thanks to the combination of our instructors’ high qualifications and rich experience with true passion, all our courses are unique. We say it with a clear conscience, especially when it comes to our climbing school 🙂 Climbing courses organized by the English Mountaineering School are a compendium of knowledge about safety rules and all other issues that allow you to enjoy this extraordinary sports discipline. We introduce step by step into the world of climbing – from indoor climbing to rock climbing, providing support at various stages of this unique adventure – from the purchase of equipment, through effective and interesting activities, support with various training materials to proposals for joint training, sports or recreational trips.
Participation in climbing courses organized by the English Mountaineering School guarantees that students will obtain comprehensive skills in the field of rock climbing. Our training is aimed at people who do not have any climbing experience or who already have basic knowledge about rock climbing. Very experienced and dedicated rock climbing instructors will take care of you with professional care and answer all your questions. Because they have gone through it themselves, they are also able to help you overcome various barriers, whether it is related to the fear of heights and space, or flying with bottom belaying.
We offer two types of rock courses – a climbing course on the insured roads and a full (formerly basic rock course). The four-day road climbing course provides insured persons with all the necessary skills and knowledge needed to safely practice climbing with bottom belaying, on climbing routes equipped with permanent belay points. It is a natural continuation of the artificial wall climbing course, or a proposal for people who already climb in rocks, but would like to do it safer or more efficiently. On the other hand, the six-day full rock course (formerly the basic rock course) covers climbing both on the roads of the insured and those on which you set up safety points yourself. Before starting this type of course, we require participation in a climbing course on an artificial wall or on insured roads, or simply having the skills of climbing and belaying with upper and lower protection – the basic rock course will then turn out to be much more effective and its program can be implemented in assumed time.
Details of each type, of course, can be found below. Framework training programs will help you to find out about the issues raised.
