This indoor workshop aims to give any climber key and useful skills to deal with a whole host of unforeseen issues, and intends to develop personal climbing skills beyond that required for a Rock Climbing Instructor.
The techniques taught in this session will give you more confidence as your climbing takes you into more adventurous places such as sea cliffs, higher and more remote mountain crags and cliffs. Any climber/ mountaineer will find value in being equipped to cope with certain eventualities that may occur and be as self-reliant as possible.
We will cover the skills for dealing with common problems and get you into the mindset of being able to foresee, problem solve and improvise. This workshop will fully engage you, not just practically but also cerebrally. It will show you all the amazing things you can do with a couple of lengths of 6mm cord. Not only will it help you demystify this key climbing skill set but you will have a lot of fun while doing so.
Develop a calm and considered approach to climbing problems that may occur. To give added confidence when heading into remote cliffs.
