ATNE are the North Easts only deliverer of all of the the Mountain Training's new Rock Skills courses. They are designed to provide structured training opportunities for people who want to learn more and become independent climbers. Climbing on rock is an addictive, enjoyable activity that has many benefits, both physical and psychological. There are three different levels so that complete beginners and those with more experience can choose the most appropriate starting point.

Is it for me?

The four courses are designed to enable you to start at the most appropriate level based on your current experience. One registration with Mountain Training gives you access to all four Rock Skills courses. Registration is free for under 18s and £20 for adults. This fee contributes towards the administration and quality assurance of the Rock Skills Scheme, gives you access to DLOG (a digital logbook for recording your activities) and material to help you develop as a rock climber.
