At AITW we believe that climbing has the power to be life changing, bringing with it an amazing community and a whole load of physical and mental health benefits.

If you’ve already taken part in a beginners induction session but want to learn good techniques to propel you through the beginner grades, then you are ready for our Level 2 progression session. This session leads on from Level 1 but if you have already had an induction anywhere then this session could benefit you. In this session we focus mainly on V0-V1 problems.

What you will learn

  • Consolidating the skills learned in Level 1
  • Levelling up accurate footwork – Foot swaps workshop and how to trust feet on smaller foot holds
  • Climbing with twists to reduce the need for climbing with upper body strength 
  • Touching on flagging as learned on in Level 3
  • Expansion on route reading
  • Boulder brushes – Why, when, where?
  • A warm down routine to use for every climb

I am a bit nervous to turn up and climb in front of people

It’s guaranteed that everybody feels a little nervous, but once you get on the wall you’ll find that all you can focus on is the climb, which is the beauty of climbing! We will all be cheering each other on and not take our sessions too seriously.

I am scared of heights!

Nobody will be encouraged to climber higher than they feel comfortable, and sometimes even climbing half way up the wall can feel like a big achievement! Climbing is a fast track way to overcoming a fear of heights, ask your instructor.

What do I wear?

It is encouraged to wear gym style comfortable clothing. Jewellery should be removed and hair tied back. Avoid hoodies due to front pockets and hood. It will be essential to wear climbing shoes which can be rented at the gym, climbing in trainers or bare foot is not permitted.
