/ MCI Trainee looking for students

Will Tranter 11 Feb 2020


I am looking for people to take multi pitch climbing and scrambling in Snowdonia, North Wales as practice towards my MCI assessment.

The climbing days would involve me focusing on teaching aspects of multi pitch climbing appropriate to your current skill level, and anything specific that you would like to achieve from the day. It would be ideal for people that single pitch climb and want to progress into multi pitch climbing or those who want to improve their multi pitching skills.  If you have climbed indoors but not outdoors and would like to learn, I could also cater for this.

Ideally I am looking for pairs, however if there are individuals that are interested I could possibly pair you up with another person. 

I am available to following dates:

April: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13
June: 19,20,21,27,28,29,30
July: 1,2,3,4,5,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30,31
August: 1,2,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16

I also have some Lakes based days available:

April: 18
June: 8,12,13,14,24

If you are interested in organising one or even multiple, please get in touch. Any questions please feel free to ask. You can also contact me by email willtranter@gmail.com.

MCI Trainee - As an MCI trainee I do not , as yet, hold the Mountaineering & Climbing Instructor which is the recognised training qualification for the instruction of scrambling and multi-pitch rock climbing in the UK. I've undergone the training course, but training for an award does not constitute a qualification.

Insurance - I do not hold insurance that allows me to receive payment or benefits in kind for instruction, but as a volunteer with membership of a mountaineering council of the UK or Eire I am insured for third party liability. These topics will need to be discussed in detail and agreed before an activity is conducted.

Thanks for your interest!

Hi Will,

I notice you're based in Kendal; I'm based in Lancaster. I'm not a novice (leading up to E1), but I've a lot of availability at the moment due to being between jobs. Feel free to drop me a line me if you're ever keen to get out midweek and practice stuff (especially Monday, Wednesday or Thursday).

Hi Will,

I'm in a similar situation to you having done my training last autumn and now looking towards assessment. If you are short a peer to get some days in practising any skills on any days you can't find any actual clients let me know.

I'm in North Wales 1st till 19th of April with only a few partners and mock clients booked in so far...

Hopefully met you on the hills either way and all the best with your preparations this spring and summer.
