    Climbing Courses in Poland

    I’ve been involved in Climbing Education since 2011 when I started teaching rock climbing (indoor&outdoor). Today I teach also trad climbing, dry tooling near of Kraków and Wrocław. Teaching outdoor skills and sharing my passion for the mountains is what drives me. climbing is a fantastic way to get fit, build strength and stamina, meet people and make new friends. Last but not least - Great adventure :-). Whether you are looking to learn the essential skills of rope work and belaying, boulder in the centre with confidence, take the next step into lead climbing or brush up on your skills & techniques, I have a course for you.

    Rock Climbing

    From taking the whole family from ages 4 and up out top-rope climbing in very kid friendly areas to traditional multi-pitch routes with private clients I love to rock climb. All kit gear (without climbing shoes) are included. My courses are near of Kraków (good accomodationa and very close to Airport Balice) or in Sokoliki (granite rocks ~100 km from Wrocław.

    Rock Climbing Day Guides

    If you want a private guide for Rock Climbing then you are in a good place. I will take you to the best polish climbing location that suits your climbing experience.

    It does not matter if you are a complete beginner, I will always find you the perfect level of difficulty to suit you and make sure you finish totally satisfied. I will ask you about your experience, skills, and goals for the day and choose routes most appropriate for your interests and ability. Our goal is to provide a safe and enjoyable day out on the rock. This activity is available as a half or full day. These prices do not include transport so if you have your own transport you can meet us at the location, or we can usually offer transport on request.

    Your Cost Includes: All climbing gear (without shoes) and professional climbing guide(s).

    Prices: €125 – €225 per day depends on group size, content, activity, country and length of the booking. 80€ for half of day for one person.

    Movement & Technique

    When searching for improvement it’s easy to focus on increasing strength and fitness and hope good technique will somehow develop at the same time. Climbing movement/technique is very important to being able to climb well and progress through the grades. Moving efficiently when climbing will help more than doing any number of one arm pull ups! I will show you ways in which to position your body enabling you to climb with the minimum of effort. This knowledge is essential for the development of both boulderers and roped-climbers alike.
