Beginners’ courses are arranged when enough people are interested and signed up. You can sign-up to the beginners’ course at www.tekiila.fi/alkeiskurssi.
The beginners’ course duration is approximately 5 hours, which includes a brief intro to climbing in general and practical training. You’ll learn how to tie in figure 8 climbing knot, ATC belaying and other necessary skills for independent indoor climbing. The course price is 20 € for students in Tampere Universities and 50 € for others, and it includes all necessary gear for the course and the membership for the rest of the academic year!
Make sure you have paid the SportUni sports fee before the course! (Do this well in advance to make sure you get rights to enter Tamppi Areena!)
An outdoors rock climbing course is usually arranged in the beginning of summer and is comprised of a small theory part held at Tamppi Areena and of practical training that takes place during weekends on some of the nearby crags. Some amount of climbing experience is recommended.
