SPA Training

SPA Training

The training course is for potential leaders and assumes basic competence as a rock climber with experience of leading climbs. Before attending the training course candidates must have registered with either the MLTE, MLTS, MLTW, have at least 12 months experience of rock climbing and be not less than 18 years of age. All aspects of the syllabus will be covered during the two day training course and then it is up to you to consolidate before assessment. The training course will have a minimum of four candidates present, and a maximum of eight. The maximum trainer/candidate ratio is 1:4. Larger courses have dual benefits: the varied experience of the candidates enables an individual to have a better chance of seeing how their own skills compare and they also get the opinion of two trainers.

Now relax!

SPA Assessment

​Before attending the 2 day assessment course, candidates must have attended a Training course (or have been granted exemption), be able to lead Severe grade climbs and hold a valid First Aid Certificate. Our courses start on the Friday night with an introduction to the assessment and theory paper. The Saturday is out on the crag for the day then onto a climbing wall in the evening. Sunday is another day out on a different crag and rock type with final debriefs and individual action plans before departure.

Portaledge’s with EE

We have been doing a few days of family rock-climbing with Dan every year, starting as complete outdoor novices and moving on to increasingly difficult and varied routes over the past five years. Dan manages to combine infinite patience, encouragement, and a great sense of humour with knowing exactly how much and how far to challenge us, so that each time we progress in ways we could never have imagined! Being able to overcome fears of exposure, managing multi-pitch severe (or harder) routes AND being able to enjoy ourselves at the same time is all thanks to Dan's experience as an instructor and his excellent people skills. We have recommended Dan and Real Adventure highly to all our friends and anyone who is looking for brilliant fun, challenge, and adventure!
