What is sport climbing, actually, you may wonder. Well, it’s a form of rock climbing in which the climber’s main goal is to climb a route at the top of their physical, technical, and psychological abilities. Yes, it is as complex as that. In order to be able to focus on the maximum performance, the climber ascends a route that is protected with permanently fixed bolts and anchors - no gear placement (that is trad climbing), just clipping quickdraws.

 

For us, the people at Rockbusters, sport climbing means much more than that. When on a climbing trip, we want to eat, sleep and breathe climbing. Join us for a week or two at one of Europe’s best climbing destinations to see how easy it is to become a climbing junkie. Immerse yourself in crimps, sidepulls, undercuts, tufas, gastons, cracks and dihedrals with us… These are not bad words. With our top coaching and crags selection you’ll find out pretty soon what are these and how to use them. Our approach is guaranteed to boost your technique, mental skills, improve your strengths and fight your weaknesses.


We’ll teach you all you need to know about the equipment. How to choose the best set and correct number of quickdraws for a particular route, what is the best belay device for you, what types of shoes and what sizes go best for different types of climbs, what is the best harness for sport climbing, how long a rope should you get and what diameter, what is a sling for, how to make your personal anchor, what type of carabiners do you really need for sport climbs? All these and more questions will be answered for you naturally in the course of this breakthrough trip.


We will go through all safety and technical details so everyone is able to do as much climbing as possible and enjoy climbing with each other. We will push you to achieve more during your stay, arming you with all the necessary techniques and safety measures before you try anything new.

 

We will pay big attention to, and refresh all safety procedures and skills one necessarily needs to handle 100% to stay reasonably safe and enjoy pushing the physical and mental limits when sport climbing.

 

We need just a week’s time to turn you into a confident leader of any sport climbing routes and make you a better climber overall, no matter your current grade or level. We will show you all the sport climbing tricks you may use to stay safe and to be happily trying routes beyond your comfort zone.

 

This course is a great way into climbing culture. It’s intense for sure, but this means you’ll develop your skills quickly and progress way faster than you thought possible. Join the Rockbusters beginner climbing courseNovice and you’ll quickly reach new heights and be ready to take on epic routes you could only dream of.

 

Minimum of 3 participants. In other cases we will offer different trips/courses in the same or higher value or issue full refund.

Accommodation

There is a basic shared accommodation organized by Rockbusters. Our main goal is to integrate you into the local climbing communities and for these purposes we use local climbing hostels, cottages, campsites or places run by local climbers. Feel free to reach out to adjust these settings to your personal satisfaction. 

In Labske Udoli, Frankenjura, Finale Ligure, Zillertal, Margalef and Rodellar we stay in hostels or campsites bungalows with bunk beds. In Gorges du Tarn we use pernement caravans which belongs to the campsite and in Ceuse we stay in campsites with hot showers, wi-fi, restaurant, ..., we provide tents so you will need to bring sleeping bag and foampad.

FOOD

Upon arrival we will take you to the store to shop for breakfast and lunch food for the week. Refrigerators are provided by the campsite, and we will return to the store once more during the week to replenish supplies.

Communal Spanish-inspired dinners prepared by a professional chef are offered every night for €15. They include entree, salad, dessert and wine. Dietary restrictions and allergies can be accommodated with advanced notice. 

We may also decide to plan a night out at a restaurant in one of the many nearby towns.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

We provide all the gear, but you will need to bring your own reasonably tight climbing shoes and harness. We have belay devices, slings, and helmets, but you might prefer to bring your own.
