Our one day Southern Sandstone Ropework Course will teach the climber how to set up their own 'bottom ropes' on the Southern Sandstone Crags at Harrisons Rocks in Sussex/Kent.  Progress your knowledge of climbing and equipment in beautiful surroundings.  We'll meet in the morning and our climbing instructor will lead you to the rocks and teach you all you need to know in order to set up your own climbs on southern sandstone, increasing your climbing independence.

To learn the best practise for safely setting up your own 'bottom ropes' on Southern Sandstone crags and have a much greater understanding of climbing equipment, its intended uses and its limitations.

Who is it for?
Anyone who has climbed indoors or outdoors in the past and wants to further their ability in the sport by being able to set up their own ropes on Sandstone rocks and climb without an instructor.

You must be able to safely and confidently belay, personal climbing ability isn't important although a reasonable level of fitness is required.

March to October, please see the calendar for the next available dates.

Excellent course down at Harrisons Rocks with Hatt. Levi the instructor was great!

This course was very well run, it's technical and hands on and I learnt a lot from it. The instructor is very experienced and really knows his stuff, thus constantly explaining and showing how things should be done properly and safely. I know feel confident in setting up my own ropes on Sandstone rock and will be putting my new found knowledge into use very soon. And on top of all that it was a really fun day.

Excellent course.. Really appreciated all the advise and knowledge which was passed on by the instructor. I will be applying all the knowledge that was given to me on the day and will be definitely attending a further course in the future.

I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to further develop their knowledge on ropework, setting up anchors and learning more about the different climbing equipment.

Awesome day!!


The course was excellent. There were only 3 of us on the course so we felt we were given pretty much one to one tuition. Kyle made it a real joy and was very supportive and encouraging, I can't recommend Kyle or this course highly enough.

Second time we have been climbing with Hatt adventures and again it was a fantastic day.
The coaching and information has given my girlfriend and I all the confidence we need to go it alone on the rocks! Started with the full day climbing experience and now having done the southern sandstone course feel we are ready to take the next step in our climbing. Many thanks again and look forward to seeing you again in the future.

It was great to learn from someone who obviously knew what he was talking about but was able to present it in a friendly, non intimidating way. We now feel confident we can go up to Harrisons rocks or similar at any time and set up and climb which gives a whole new dimension to our climbing and makes it feel like a proper outdoor sport again. Feeling achy and tired now, but inspired to go out and do more!

I just wanted to let you know how brilliant the one day Southern Sandstone course was for us. It covered everything we needed and more, Kyle was a great instructor (our thanks to him) and we had a great day of climbing too.
