Basic course in rock climbing is a two-day course for those who want to learn to climb outdoors using a top rope. We place great emphasis on building top rope anchors and that you should be able to climb down from the cliff independently.
We who run the courses are authorized instructors through the Swedish Climbing Association and all courses follow the Swedish Climbing Association's standards.
Pontus Frank is the main instructor and has many years of experience as an instructor. With great passion, he teaches you what you need to know for your next adventure.
Among other things, we go through basic climbing technique, top rope anchors, knots, rope handling, safety at the cliff, placement of belays, abseiling technique.
Length of the course
Two days, about 8 hours per day. We always try to make it so it's two days in a row.
To reach as far as possible on this course, a green card (top rope card) is a prerequisite. You can take it via Klätterhuset in Luleå or through Luleå Klätterklubb.
If we keep the course around Luleå, we are usually at Falkberget in Öjebyn and at Åberget/Åbergfortet in Boden.
We can also be at Dödlarsberget outside Älvsbyn. Which cliff we are at depends on the layout of the course.
When registering for the course, you will receive more information about where we meet.
You can borrow the equipment you need from us, but if you have your own equipment, we would like you to use it, so you will be comfortable with what you have. Regardless, we have different equipment with us that you can try out. But your own harness, rope brake, climbing shoes are fine if you have them.
Everyone on the course must wear a helmet when necessary, we have it for you if you don't have one. After the course, you can order climbing equipment through us at a good package price.
SEK 2600/person, minimum two and maximum four people per instructor. Sometimes we have an assistant instructor with us and then we can increase to 6 participants.
Before the start of the course, you must be a member of a climbing club affiliated to the Swedish Climbing Association, e.g. Luleå Klätterklubb. Then you have insurance through the club.
