Winter workshops

Organise your climbing with these 3 carefully designed all day workshops and a 3 month holistic training plan. I will help you set goals and provide ongoing support and motivation. You'll be more prepared for the Spring than ever before.

Warming down at the end of day 1… everyone needed it after the circuit training!!

This whole programme is for people climbing 6a-6c (onsight or redpoint) routes and want to hit the good (let’s hope) Spring weather ready for action. You may be a trad climber, sport climber or indoor climber. The workshops are routes focussed however many of the exercises we cover will be beneficial to boulderers too.

You need to be able to commit to climbing 2 times a week (two 2 hour sessions and perhaps another at home e.g. on a pull up bar or floor exercises). You will also be at least 14 years old and an independent climber who can belay lead climbers confidently.

"I really enjoyed the Winter Workshops.  Katherine worked us hard but we all had good fun in the process.  It was a really relaxed way to learn so much about so many different aspects of climbing training.  I think the strength training and mental tactics have been particularly important to me in improving my confidence and the endurance training has already increased my onsight grade to 6b to 6b+."  Katie

"I gained confidence in my ability, improved my technique and surpassed my own expectations. I have improved my trad and sport leading grade this year.  I was feeling a bit frustrated with my climbing and the thing I really wanted was to gain some tools for ongoing improvement. I now have plenty to work on and the tools to do it which is great."    Isi
