Skills Training

Here at the Pat Falvey School of Mountaineering we invite and encourage you to learn new skills and to build on your existing skills. We believe that walkers and climbers should be self-sufficient on the mountains and hills for their own safety. These courses will open an entirely new, adventurous and safe mountaineering world for you. For walkers, we run fitness assessment, trek preparation, hillwalker progression and mountain navigation courses. For climbers that would like to enhance their skills on camp craft, scrambling, rock-climbing and general rope-work techniques while also how to deal with the psychology of climbing big mountains. We also provide an Introduction to the logistics required for expedition planning and specialise in Expeditions and Seven Summit Peaks preparation. Please select below:
