2018 Training Program
This semester SURMC will be running a training program focusing on outdoor rock climbing.
This program is aimed at taking people from ‘competent indoor climber’ standard to ‘outdoor sport trip leader’ standard, with the optional extra skills for multi-pitch and trad. This is a great opportunity to learn to climb outdoors, and fast track skills that would otherwise take a long time to develop. If you’ve been climbing indoors for a while and a keen to get outdoors, this is exactly the thing for you. This trip is totally free of charge to SURMC members (WOAH!!!?? Crazy good deal).
The program involves 4-6 teaching trips (run by volunteer SURMC members) where you will learn specific skills. There will also be specified unsupervised practice tasks where you will consolidate what you learn.
You cannot be too skilled to attend this program, and you are welcome to join at any stage (if you have already mastered the previous skills), however we require that everyone attend the ‘trip leading, first aid and rescue skills’ day on the 13th May.
You are suitable for this program if you satisfy all of the following:
- If you are starting from the beginning you will attend every session
- You will attend the ‘trip leading, first aid and rescue skills day’
- Will run at least one SURMC club trip next year (or later this year)
- You can often climb approx grade 16 indoors without falling (easy end of yellow top rope at the ledge)
