Climbing progression at Beacon.
Been climbing for a while and looking to progress beyond your current level? You’re on the right page. Improving at climbing isn’t just about strength and body conditioning; it’s also about learning new skills and techniques so that you can use your body more efficiently. Our progression options will help you get the most out of your climbing and will help you to access climbs and areas at Beacon that have previously been unattainable too. Hoorah for that.
I want to improve… what are the options?

Progression Coaching has helped me a great deal with my climbing, technique-wise, movement-wise and with my anxiety about falling, to the point where I feel more confident and happier with my climbing. The falling practice has helped me massively with controlling the anxiety I would sometimes feel, which I felt was stopping my leading progression. I feel that I have improved with my bouldering too – even if I do only use it to warm up and practice before lead climbing – and I enjoy bouldering more now than I did before the course. All in all, money well spent and I would recommend the course to anyone who asks!
I’m just getting back into climbing, so the Progression Coaching course was perfect timing, especially because I didn’t want to form bad habits that would be harder to correct in the future. The course provided me with a lot of information that I can continue to use to improve and progress my climbing. Thanks for being so positive and encouraging. It’s done my confidence a lot of good, as well as improving my climbing technique!
Surprisingly, the most significant thing I learnt on the course wasn’t really about climbing. It was that I had significant muscle imbalances (weak back muscles). Since being made aware of this, and undertaking the suggested exercises, my shoulder injury has almost completely gone; my posture is now far better, and after doing further research on the subject, I’m aware that I’m far less likely to injury my shoulders and elbows in the future. This knowledge has had a huge impact not just on my climbing but also on my day-to-day life. Before the course, I was completely ignorant of this. This knowledge in isolation would have more than justified doing the course. Many thanks! The course was enjoyable, hugely beneficial and extremely rewarding.
