Are you looking for information about accessible alpine rock routes? Would you like to run through some big wall skills before your trip out to Yosemite?
Do you fancy a weekend in North Wales, with like-minded climbers, gaining knowledge from qualified and experienced guides and instructors?
Maybe The Big Climb is for you.
The Big Climb is a weekend of workshops, lectures and events on the 14th and 15th of May 2011 at Plas y Brenin, North Wales.
The price for the weekend is just £160 which includes two nights accommodation and all your food, in addition to the world class coaching and tuition and guest speakers on Friday and Saturday night.
The aim of The Big Climb weekend will be for people to learn from the experts in a series of workshops covering a wide range of different climbing skills: from bouldering to sport climbing; from training to first aid: from racking your gear to tackling your first big wall.
There is also a huge Goody Bag of free gifts for everyone attending, plus evening speakers on Friday and Saturday nights.
More details on each of the workshops on the Plas y Brenin site here.
