Rock Climbing Course – Saturday November 20

,

CAWA has previously organised climbing instruction courses with Adventure Out and we are pleased to again be able to offer members a few different training options. Participating in such courses not only enhances your technical skills and confidence, but also improves safety out on the rock.

In addition to running courses exclusively for CAWA members at heavily discounted rates, Adventure Out is also offering CAWA members a 15% discount off standard scheduled programs (as listed on their website).

The advantage of courses that are organised specifically for groups of CAWA members is that they can be tailored to incorporate particular skills you may wish to learn and require only a small minimum number of participants.

You will see below that we have already organised one course for November 2010, excusively for members, but we would like to hear from those of you who would like us to run some of the other available courses.

It is really important to be able to set up safe anchors and top ropes, so that when participating in any climbing activities you can take responsibility for your own safety and enjoyment. Sometimes there are not enough experienced climbers around to follow up climbs, which means that it can be a frustrating day out. The course outlined on the right will equip you with the skills required to set up your own top ropes.

Some of the available courses include:

Introductory Rock Climbing
Single Rope Technique
Lead Rock Climbing

Please see the Adventure Out website for details.

Next Course:
Introductory Rock Climbing and Basic Rope Work (for CAWA members)

Date: Saturday 20 November 2010

This is a specially designed condensed version of the 2 day course Adventure Out normally runs. It is ideal for those who have just started climbing or who want to make the transition from indoors to outdoors. The course will be conducted at Churchman’s Brook, just near Armadale.

The course can be tailored to suit what you would like to learn but would normally cover:

Equipment used in rock climbing
Principles of movement on rock
Knots and rope management
Safety
Anchor points
Belay systems
Abseiling
Rock Climbing ethics
Environmental considerations

Minimum of four people required to run the course.

Cost: $169.
