The intention is to explore the management and safety considerations of managing ghyll scrambling and canyoning. We will go into a ghyll and canyon and look at good practice and by participating in the activity learn about its safe management. Add some extra skills to your teaching tool box. Familiarise yourself with a local ghyll scrambling venue and explore the role of the leader/instructor and ways to teach/lead the activity to groups.
Participants need to bring some footwear they can get wet, ideally boots but wellies or approach shoes if necessary. Please also bring some gloves – cycling, workwear or wet gloves to wear.
Wetsuits/helmets/harnesses/spraytops/buoyancy aid can be provided. Our wetsuits have neoprene hoods. Alternatively, please bring a thin hat to wear under the helmet.
Wetsuit socks we can be loaned out too. Feel free to bring your own helmet/wetsuit, harness if you wish, ideally with cows tail on the harness. But all can be loaned by Andy if you wish.
