Intended for people who want to start sport climbing

Initiation-level climbing courses are intended for anyone who has never practiced climbing or who doesn’t know the techniques necessary to carry out the activity safely, who wants to start climbing or who wants to get into this sport. The courses are intended for participants from 13 years old. For younger people, we recommend a private climbing baptism.

The initiation course is divided into three days. Each day constitutes a day of activity of approximately 4 hours of course.

Those interested will be able to choose the course they want to start with based on their knowledge.

Once the Initiation III course has been passed, the participants will have the necessary tools to practice climbing independently.

Initiation I

A course designed for people who want to learn rock climbing. During the session we will practice the basic maneuvers of sport climbing, safety means and basic progression technique with the rope from above (Top rope).

In addition to knowing the different climbing modalities, we will know and use the basic material, and each participant will be tested with routes of different levels. Future climbers will be the protagonists of the session and we will practice a day of climbing where the instructor will check that the maneuvers are done correctly and safely. In addition, we will know some of the areas to practice climbing in Mallorca, and minimizing the environmental impact.

We will agree on a meeting point, depending on the time of year (Palma, Pollença, Alcúdia Manacor, Escorca…).

Initiation II

A course designed for climbers who know the contents of the previous course or have completed the Initiation I course. We will review all the contents taught in the previous level, practicing them throughout the session.

In this session, we will climb more autonomously, we will have to string ourselves in pairs using the correct equipment and maneuvers to practice climbing safely, and the climbing instructor will check, at all times, that the safety protocols are followed.
We will review the climbing technique in Top Rope and we will begin to climb first in the rope with additional means of security, emphasizing the clip techniques, the progression technique and belaying with rope below.
The participants will start the correct end-of-lane maneuvers without carabiners in the meeting and to do a fortune rappel midway.

The course will take place in an area other than the Initiation I course.

A course designed for climbers who have already practiced the contents of the Initiation II climbing course or have completed the second course. We will review all the contents taught in the previous course and we will put them into practice throughout the session. The participants will already climb autonomously, we will select the climbing route according to the level of each one, we will have to string in pairs using the correct material and the safety protocols learned. We will review the lead climbing technique and climb using this technique, emphasizing the techniques of clipping, belaying and falling.
We will practice the climbing fall first with the correct dynamic fall blocking technique. We will assume the correct end-of-track maneuvers with ring at the meeting and we will rappel down from it.
Participants who successfully complete this block will have acquired the necessary knowledge to climb independently and without the help of an instructor.
