This meet is specifically for those of you who want to learn skills that will enable you to take on the wonderful world of trad climbing. This Skills Weekender is for you if you are already an indoor climber with the confidence to lead and belay a partner safely or you're a sport climber looking to make the leap into trad. You'll learn skills vital for trad climbing that you can then use to further your own progression.
We'll cover 4 core areas;
1) Gear, what is it and how to place it safely,
2) Belaying with half ropes,
3) Setting up anchors to keep you and your climbing partner safe,
4) Abseiling on a single line and half ropes.
We will climb on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th. The format will be 5 groups of 4 novices with 5 group leaders taking you through the areas outlined above.
We will be staying at the bunkhouse in Bamford on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th May.
