Beginners Winter Climbing Training in the Lakes
February 1 @ 6:30 pm - February 3 @ 6:30 pmFree
Jeff Smith has very kindly offered to run a beginners winter climbing training session in the Lakes for up to 4x lucky people.
The training will cover things from the basics of ice-axe arrest, crampon use, navigation in white-out etc.
Plus more advanced areas including rope work, setting up ice/turf anchors/belays, assessing snow/ice/cornice conditions.
For anyone interested in joining, you’ll need to know the basics using ropes.
Plus you’ll need your own crampons and axes, or be able to hire/borrow your own, plus suitable winter boots and clothing.
Recommended accommodation is the YHA in Glenridding, however please book your own once your place is confirmed/logistics have been organised.
