Rock Climbing Certificate Courses


What is “Rock Climbing”?

Here, rock climbing refers to what is commonly called “traditional climbing”, which is a form of climbing on natural rock cliffs. When she is climbing, the climber will place equipment into places such as gaps between rocks, or around tree trunks, in order to establish “temporary anchors” for belaying herself; as these anchors will be removed after the climb, traditional climbing has less impact on the cliff face, when compared to other forms of climbing.
