DMM Masterclasses

DMM have teamed up with the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI) to bring you free workshops at The Telegraph Outdoor Adventure & Travel Show designed to sharpen your outdoor skills and help you make the most of your next climbing trip. All workshops will be run by fully qualified Mountain Instructors and members of the AMI, the representative body for all professionally qualified Mountain Instructors in the UK and Ireland.

Place the perfect nut or select the best cam. Learn the dark art of traditional climbing protection and how best to use it.
Who is it for? Novice climbers wishing to place nuts and cams with confidence and arrange a safe belay. The workshop will be ground based and practical. All gear supplied.

Now Get Out of That! – Escaping the System

1 hour & 6 places per session (Fri/Sat/Sun).
Lock off your belay plate, escape the system etc. with lots of top tips and handy hints from the experts. If you have ever got to a stance and said “I hope that will work” then this is for you.

Perfect Pick Placement

The workshop will be under the expert guidance of a Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (MIC) holder i.e. someone who is qualified to climb ice for a living! All gear supplied.
Who is it for? Climbers with some previous experience of ice axes who would like to learn some of the insider knowledge to make snow and ice climbing slicker and safer.
