2 hr assessment

Stuck at the same level of climbing? Can't progress but not sure what you should be doing differently, or maybe you'd just like to be pushed that bit harder? Well this could be perfect for you. During your 2 hour assessment we will evaluate your climbing on a variety of problems and training equipment assessing your strengths and weakness, be it technique, strength, stamina or mental approach. Each person will have a different goal so we'll go through that at the start and tailor the session to suit you. 

At the end of the session we will put together a basic training plan for you, if we feel you'd benefit from one of our coaching sessions further down the line we'll recommend which one/s would be best to help you improve further.  An assessment session must be attended before any of our bespoke coaching sessions.  If you feel you have a good grasp on what you'd like to improve and don't think you'll need an assessment come and have a chat with us, if we feel you could do with out it we'll let you know.

Specific coaching sessions

After completing an assessment there are many areas we may suggest for you to improve on. This may be basic strength training, mental tactics, stamina... the list goes on. Once we have determined what you need to improve on we can suggest the right sessions to you and work with on them.

Coaches

Below are all the coaches available, each with a host of experience and expertise, all you have to do is choose! Prices differ for most coaches and are for 1 person, to add anymore to the session it's £5pp, we advise no more than 3 to a session as you may not get out as much as you could.

Dan is responsible for the Beastmaker circuit at Eden Rock and one of the creative minds behind the Beastmaker brand itself. Dan modestly boulders 8b+ in his spare time and is the king of the training board, he also dabbles in Trad, climbing the odd E9 in a session and partakes in a bit of sport climbing (8c). So if you're looking to climb like a pro Dan's most likely your man.
