About

Saturday session - Slick ropework for MLs

This workshop concentrates on managing a group on steep group and emergency rope work required for Mountain Leader assessment a great opportunity to update and practise your skills either as a refresher or particularly if you are preparing for an assessment. Let’s face it when did you last get your rope out? 

The workshop will cover route selection and safeguarding a group in ascent and descent, confidence roping, selecting and using anchors.

Workshop provider

I’m Stuart Carter a Winter Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor. A Mountain Leader and Rock Climbing Instructor provider for Mountain Training. I am also a Moderator for Mountain Training. I own and run the company ​ ​www.climb365.co.uk

I’m really looking forward to meeting you on the day.
 
I’ll do my best to get us out and spend as long as possible in the hills looking at ropework and getting hands-on practice.
 
What to bring:

Please bring personal clothing to suit the weather. Gloves are essential, Ideally with grippy palms. Good sturdy mountain/walking boots. If you have a helmet and a rope about 30m long that would be ideal. I’ll bring spares if you don’t have your own. Personal meds, ouch pouch/small first aid kit.
 
Plenty of questions and ropework ideas you want to look at. Sense of humour :)
 
Maps: We’ll aim to get out on the hills near Bessy Boot, so you’ll need a NW 1:25000 map. This is not a nav day so we’ll just nav if we need to. However, it’s quite useful to see what ground we are on and see how this looks on the map.

Questions:

Any questions about the session I’m running please get in touch via Jo Peters at the MTA.
