Back due to popular demand!

If you’re thinking about a big wall adventure this autumn and need to brush up on your aid techniques or you’re unsure how to clean a pendulum, these may be the courses for you.

Andy will be holding 3 workshops in September, teaching you all you need to know;

Wednesday 24th - Road to the Nose (Basic Course)
Thursday 25th - Road to the Nose (Basic Course)
Friday 26th - Road to the Shield (Advanced Course)

(10am - 4pm)
£150.00 per person

• The courses will give you an insight into the multitude of physical and mental challenges you will face on a big wall.
• You will learn about the gear required for big-wall ascents.
• You will practice the techniques of a basic wall system in a safe environment, mastering the ability to deal with multiple ropes, slings, aiders etc.
• You will learn about hauling and cleaning, including cleaning pendulums.

With such a wealth of knowledge Andy will be able to impart some ‘tricks of the trade’ and regale you with plenty of stories of his experiences.

*To attend the Road to the Shield course you must have a basic understanding of aiding already and ideally should done the basic Road to the Nose course already, or have some big wall experience.
