Natural Climbing

Natural climbing is defined as climbing outdoors on natural rock. 

There are essentially three types of natural climbing: Traditional (Trad), Sport and Bouldering although the reality is a little more complex than that.

Natural climbs can be done on single-pitch crags but also include much longer routes where multi-pitch techniques have to be employed. Although some crags have bolts for belays and lead-climbing, the majority of British crags require belays and protection to be placed by the climber. It's fair to say that natural climbing is a step-up and a logical progression from artificial climbing.

Kent Scouts have the ability to take young people and adults natural rock climbing all over the UK, and we can even train and assess adults within the Scout Association who wish to become instructors themselves. 

If you are an Adult in Scouting or Explorer Scout and have an interest in becoming a climbing instructor, then please take a look at our climbing permit page.
