/ Essential Skills Courses - £40pp
PEAK MOUNTAINEERING ESSENTIAL SKILLS COURSES
Following the success of our Essential Skills Courses over the last 4 years, we are delighted to be running them again this year - for only £40 per person per day.
All the courses run in the Peak District National Park and we've scheduled the climbing courses on consecutive days so you can always do both in a weekend - making it only £80 for a full weekend's instruction.
ESSENTIAL OUTDOOR CLIMBING SKILLS COURSE
A one day course covering key belay building skills, setting up top and bottom rope systems, gear placement and safe practice issues on outdoor crags.
The course covers many skills needed by indoor climbers looking to move outside but please note that lead climbing will not be covered on this course. All specialist equipment can be provided.
Course dates: Saturday 20/04/13 and Saturday 01/06/13
ESSENTIAL RESCUE SKILLS COURSE
A one day course covering many problem solving strategies for situations commonly encountered on outdoor crags such as how to escape the system, accompanied abseils, ascending ropes, lowering and simple hoists.
This is a condensed version of our 2 day course and won't cover some of the more complicated scenarios - but it will still give you a 'toolbox' of strategies in case the unexpected happens. All specialist equipment can be provided.
Course dates: Sunday 21/04/13 and Sunday 02/06/13
Both courses are suitable for climbers with some experience who can tie in, belay and understand basic ropework skills.
ESSENTIAL NAVIGATION SKILLS
This one day course will cover a wide range of key navigation skills and will be based on the National Navigation Award Scheme bronze level syllabus (more details on the content can be found in the navigation courses section of our website).
Course dates: Saturday 28/04/13 and Monday 06/05/13
If you are buying someone a place on one of these courses as a gift we will happily send you one of our gift vouchers to give them on their big day.
