As a club, we are sometimes able to arrange exclusive rope work skills courses. Each course covers a range of potentially vital techniques for anyone who climbs with ropes outdoors. It is suitable for those who have just started climbing as well as experienced climbers. This course provides a fantastic opportunity to not only learn, but also practice these potentially life-saving rope skills.
The next course is yet to be organized. If demand is high enough, there will also be an advanced workshop-style course for those familiar with most of the topics on the above list. There is usually a significant level of flux among those on the sign-up list, so if you are interested, it is worth contacting the organizer to be put on the reserve list. To sign up or if you have any questions, comments or corrections, e-mail the Meets Sec. Being a club event, priority will be given to OUMC members.
|Places:||up to 8 people|
|Cost:||£25 (OUMC member price)|
|Time:||Tuesdays or Thursday, 5–7pm|
|Dates:||To be arranged|
Neil Champion will be running the course and will meet you at the climbing wall. For the first session, converge in the front bouldering area. It will start at 5pm. If it is possible for everyone to arrive earlier then it might be a good idea to arrange to do so, because the wall will be quieter then. There will initially be no need to get your shoes on, unless you fancy a spot of climbing beforehand.
Please e-mail the Meets Sec with any changes of preference.
