Climbing

At Yr Hafod we run courses for Scout natural rock climbing permits and the nationally recognised Rock Climbing Instructor (formerly called SPA).


Scout Natural Rock Climbing Permits

We run regular Scout natural rock climbing permit training and assessment weekends throughout the year. All our courses are run by fully qualified volunteer staff most holding Rock Climbing Instructor, or higher.

Our courses cover training or assessment, not both, if you don’t know if you’re ready for assessment please check out our FAQs! To attend a permit training course you must already be able to lead trad climbs and be comfortable placing leader-placed protection.

Rock Climbing Instructor Training and Assessment

For those at the top of their game we provide the nationally recognised Rock Climbing Instructor qualification (formerly called SPA). If you love taking people climbing in the outdoors and want the option to use your qualifications outside of Scouts then the RCI is for you. Our Rock Climbing Instructor courses are open to members of the Scout Association and the general public.

For more details on the Rock Climbing Instructor scheme visit the Mountain Training site.
