/ Questionnaire-Lion Rocks, Clogwyn Cyrau, Conwy Slabs-N. Wales
I have created an Online questionnaire, consisting of 10 questionnaires. If you have climbed at Lion Rocks, Clogwyn Cyrau or Conwy Slab in North Wales it would be very helpful if you answered the questionnaire.
The link is: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YS5NRNT
Out of interest: why those 3? Beginners venues?
As a suggestion, if I was doing a survey I would have a list of pretty much every possible beginners venue in North Wales (probably around 20-ish in all) and then ask people to answer the same 2-3 basic questions about each crag:
- have you climbed there with a group, if so how often?
- have you climbed there personally, if so how often?
- which of the following problems have you experienced there...?
That would be much more likely to get a large number of responses and give you a wider selection of data that you could draw some worthwhile conclusions from.
It would also then allow you to then focus on a few crags in details where multiple respondents have all reported the same problems.
You're assuming there is an issue with your questions and then asking if it's worse/better ie they're leading questions which will lead to skewed responses - better to do as Ex Engineers says!
I am currently doing research into the environmenal impact of climbing and imparticular the differences between the impact of sport and trad climbing. If I can be of any assistance drop me a line.
My survey data probably won't be complete until March. But I can send you a copy after then if thats any good to you.
Thanks for your message. Im going to be writing up my research in February, March and April, so that would be good.
I should be bringing my data together over january and february, If you want me to send you want I have got then.
