Indoor Climbing Coaching


We offer a range of indoor climbing courses and indoor climbing coaching near Leeds, catering for everything from total novices to aspiring leaders. These courses are usually held at The Big Depot, Leeds.


We do not schedule courses in advance on specific dates, as we prefer to make each course bespoke for you.


Once you have become an independent climber, as far as rope-work is concerned, then all that you need to do is go climbing and enjoy it – lots! However, you might find that once you have moved beyond the beginner’s grades, that your climbing is not really progressing. Maybe it’s something to do with your climbing technique; maybe it’s nerves and a fear of falling; or, least likely, maybe your physical strength or endurance may be limiting what you can do.

Booking an improvers’ course or a short series of indoor climbing coaching sessions could be what you need to unlock new levels of performance and move you on to new climbing challenges.
