We will cover kit carried, route finding, decision making on the route. How to move on scrambling terrain, how to use the feet appropriately to the features on the rock.
We will also spend some time on some basic rope work, belays how to set them up and organise them.
On day two we will put into action what we have learned from day one on another scramble with the use of a rope to safeguard each other in different types of terrain and how to abseil should we need to.
You’ll be working up a sweat. Bring along a touch of enthusiasm and a little determination
