Dorset BMC Outdoor Trad Youth Course
This is a one day outdoor traditional climbing course for 11-17 year olds, who are confidently leading on indoor climbing walls. As well as being a fun day out climbing, the course will cover key safety skills for both the participants and the parent. This type of climbing is what is predominantly practised on British crags.
The courses are designed to give you a good taster to climbing outside and may cover topics such as:
- Types of trad climbing equipment
- Placing good protection
- Building good belays
- Differences between the wall and the crag
- Seconding and leading issues
Please note that the course content will be adapted to match the ability of the participants on each course, with instructors teaching techniques appropriate for the age and experience of attendees.

We highly recommend Eddy at Young’s Adventure Solutions. We spent the day taking part on the Dorset BMC outdoor trad youth course. My son and I really found the day useful. Eddy was a great teacher and we had lots of hand on learning and practice time. We took away plenty of new safety skills, belay techniques and rope set ups. The setting on the Dorset coast was perfect. We hope to take part in another course this summer.
