Activities News – Climbing Training for Leaders
I have organised a series of climbing training sessions for Lonsdale Scout Leaders. The objective will be to provide support for leaders who have some familiarity with climbing to obtain a Scout climbing permit, or for those who already have a permit to upgrade it. I welcome any leaders who have any climbing experience, female leaders will be especially welcome.
The sessions will cover Indoor and outdoor Single Pitch climbing, but not lead climbing, they will focus of safe climbing methods, group management, and skills coaching. You can attend as many sessions as you like and as are relevant to your training needs.
If anyone would like to join this programme but has no experience of climbing at all, I may be able to arrange pre-training sessions in addition.
This training has been subsidised from District funds, so some of the costs will be covered.
The proposed programme is as follows. The final weekend will focus on assessing participants for Scouting permits and advising them on future training options.
Friday 13th March 7pm -10pm Kendal Wall
Saturday 14th March 9am – 1pm Warton Small Quarry
Friday 20th March 7pm – 10pm Ingleton Wall or West View Wall
