Take a leisurely learning holiday in Swellendam this winter (May to August). Gain new skills, knowledge and friends. Over 50 different 3-day and 5-day midweek courses offered by Swellendam’s own local talented experts and apasionados in a variety of beautiful venues.
This introductory Rock Climbing course will teach you the basics of rock climbing in a fun and safe environment.
You will learn some theory and hear of epic climbing adventures around the world, but most of all you will have fun trying out the exhilarating sport of climbing. You will learn roping and knots, belaying (safe-guarding with the rope) and different techniques of climbing. From our base in Swellendam on Days 1 and 3, we take you to Montague on Day 2 for a full-day practical excursion, climbing an easy 20-metre crag, supported by professional guides. (If you only climb 5 metres and come down, that’s fine). This course is open to anybody of any age, in good health, basic fitness and healthy weight. You don’t have to be super strong.
