Details

Thinking of heading out to the Alps? Then booking onto an Alpine Training course is the right plan of attack.

These can be one or multiple days to suit you, covering the essential skills needed to move and operate in an Alpine environment.

We work throughout the UK, so the venue can be changed to suit your requirements and or location. We are based in the Lake District, which is a perfect playground to practice essential Alpine skills. That said we often work in Snowdonia, and the Scottish highlands/Cairngorms, which equally have their fare share of quality terrain!

Rock n Ridge works with British Mountain Guides (BMG) to be able to deliver these sorts of programs. After your training has finished with us here in the UK, we will put you in touch with highly qualified and experienced Mountain Guides throughout the Alps. You will then be able to transfer the skills learnt in the UK whilst out on your Alpine holiday.

Skills covered:

Depending on the course duration, expertise, and fitness level then we will look at some of the following techniques:


- Rope work used in the Alps
- Moving together
- General rope maintenance/Taking rope coils
- Body belays/Selecting and using direct belays
- Rock protection
- Route finding/navigation
- Descending
- How to prusik
- Crevasse rescue training
- Ice axe and crampon techniques/movement (winter only)
- Abseiling – easy – serious terrain

You may have an Alpine trip in mind? we would be happy to run through some ideas for you.

All our activities are run by passionate experienced and fully qualified and certified instructors. We are a small organisation based in the south Lakes area and have many years experience working with a huge range of clients and ability levels. The AMI (Association of Mountaineering Instructors) logo represents quality and assurance in the outdoor field, and you know that you’re getting the ‘best of the best’ instructors when you book with us.
