Teaching Multi Pitch Climbing
This workshop will look at the ways to structure and plan a teaching progression for students of different abilities; from beginner to possible leader. It will also look at how to assess the clients wants and needs and to teach two climbers with different levels of ability and different aims at the same time. on the same route. All this and much more.
Taking People Climbing
This day will look at the skills of leading safely and efficiently whilst safeguarding two seconds. The focus will be on personal climbing skills and the guiding of routes, rather than the teaching and coaching, using efficient techniques and good decision making to produce an effective performance – rather than rushing or just doing things faster.
We will focus on the skills and judgement required to manage two clients in a variety of mountain terrains up to grade 2/3 scrambles. It will cover an understanding of fundamental techniques, using as much graded ground as possible in both ascent and descent. There will be an emphasis on good judgement and decision-making as well as technical skill.
