Develop your ropework skills and gain confidence in your ability to become more independent and also to deal with and help a stranded or distressed climber.
This is a great clinic to help give an outdoor rock climber the confidence to become more independent at both a single or multi-pitch crag. We'll cover a number of common hazards, as well as some simple techniques to help avoid these hazards, as well as dealing with them if they were to happen. It all starts with the planning of a route, through to good leader placed trad. gear, to the choice of safe anchors and belay set-up as a platform to then help a second. That help could be tackling a difficult section of the climb or helping someone down if something goeies wrong. You will have plenty of food for thought and loads to go away and practise!
Summiting Mont Blanc was an important milestone for me which I am grateful to all at ISM. Particularly Terry, who is the ultimate professional never compromising on safety. Max is a pure gem with wonderful guidance and outstanding people skills in abundance.Altogether a brilliant week!
Perfectly paced and tailored, great variety of skills learned. Guiding and Instruction? Thomas was fab! Everything was pitched at the right level (no pun intended), safety was always paramount and everyone had so much fun learning everything.
