This one-day course is designed for those that have done some climbing (indoors or out) who would like to refresh previously learned skills and acquire new ones. Exact curriculum will be designed by the assembled group, but will typically involve anchor building, outdoor rock movement skills, and backed-up rappelling techniques—and, of course, lots of climbing!

Jan was a great instructor and guide! We had an introduction to outdoor climbing & anchor building and he tailored our day of private instruction to exactly what we wanted and where we wanted to climb; In this case, Quadra Island. Coming with no previous knowledge of outdoor climbing, I found it be the perfect balance of theory and climbing. I'm very confident with the skills I have no to go outdoors and top rope with just the one day course. I am definitely booking again for lead and other outdoor courses with Island Alpine Guides!
