What we're about
Partnership with : www.rockclimbing.com.hk (http://rockclimbing.com.hk)
Welcome to the most active climbing meetup,
Climbing Courses - Meetup Events - Taster Day - Lead Climbing Courses supervised by Certified Climbing Instructors for YOUR SAFETY.
We are here to inspire you and to give you guidance; from your first moves on rock to your first lead climb or international climbing adventure. We offer climbing courses from taster days, through to Bouldering courses and Learn to Lead Climb courses through to instructor qualifications and experienced climbers to make sure each climb SAFE.
We have opened this climbing meetup to encourage people to practice rock climbing and make it accessible to anybody by sharing our experience (improvements from beginner to experienced climber, fails, mental, determination, passion...) to other people.
This group is opened to beginners and experienced climbers who want to improve their climbing skills and techniques, learn basic moves, and meet new people by climbing with others in a small group of 6-8 people max in a relaxing environment in some of the best rocks in Hong Kong.
All the basic techniques, moves and especially security tips will be provided to any beginners by organisers.
Safety will be our top priority for a better climbing.
If we have enough participants, we will organise this type of climbing event several times a week on weekdays and weekends, if people are interested in.
Group of 6-8 people max in order to encourage everybody to participate and learn better during a DAY of climbing.
Participants must have their harness and own climbing shoes to attend FUN DAYS, if you don't know how or where to buy, please ask us, we will be more than happy to help.
We will provide ropes, quickdraws, belay devices,
Harness available for rental.
You can hire one of our coaches, instructors or guides from only HK$1500 per day. They’ll tailor the day to suit your aims and aspirations perfectly. You can enjoy one to one coaching or if you get together as a group, depending on the activity, you can split that cost between as many of you as you like. If you are a group we can run any of the courses listed on a date that suits you and your friends or you could just write your own agenda for a week or weekend and we’ll price it up for you.
Wear your helmet at the crag, even when you are not climbing to protect yourself from rock fall. Always check knots, harnesses, belay devices, lockers, gear, and anchor setups. If you don't know, ask someone at your own risk.
Event Organizers (although seasoned climbers) might have no professionally certified and insured training and consider every event as "climbing with your friends". If in doubt, hire a professional guide, take the lead climbing class at the gym, and/or read about safety techniques to increase your safety knowledge.
Rock climbing is an inherently dangerous sport and though we take every precaution, injury is always a possibility. If you don't know what's safe, we'll do our best to teach you, but in the end it's up to you to practice safe climbing, we take no responsibility. Your Safety is Your Personal Responsibility.
