Womens's Intro to Trad w/Mina Leslie Wujastyk
Learn the mechanics of ‘traditional’ rock climbing, from placing personal protection to safe rope management.
A half day clinic, rock climbing in the Lake District focusing on improving your 'trad' rock climbing. This is aimed at climbers who already have some experience in climbing outside, but wish to understand better the basic rope skills, techniques and mechanics that underpin trad climbing. You'll learn more about placing traditional protection, building safe anchors, and good rope management to enjoy a safe climbing experience. We hope that along with some input into your own personal climbing movement you'll feel more confident and aware climbing outside which will help with that progression of slowly becoming more independent.
The women's trad clinics will run -
9am to 12.30pm - Saturday Morning (FULL)

Testimonials For ISM
Good mixture of progressive instruction and learning, climbing and guiding. We climbed some very good mountains from good huts and made the best of the mixed weather conditions. The course also used a range of situations and locations to cover a wide range of skills and techniques.
Classic AlpinISM (Instructional Course)
“What an incredible week learning the basics of Mountaineering. The course is perfectly balanced between summiting high alpine peaks and learning rope, climbing and glacier skills.
Our three guides were all excellent: Thomas, Phil and Paulo. I can't speak highly enough of them. They were all good company and superb climbers, and patient with us all.
