Intermediate Rock Climbing
The summer months are approaching! To prepare, the KMC have arranged some training for the members: Intermediate Rock Climbing. Intermediate Rock Climbing is a 2 day course that teaches the skills needed to operate competently as a second climber that follows a lead climber, outdoors on real rock. As a climber this is a great skill set to attain, as it allows you to develop climbing partnerships, learn from experienced climbers, and develop your own experience more quickly. The course content includes:
Rock protection – placement and removal
Rigging for top and bottom rope climbing
Seconding a lead climber
Descending from routes safely
Guidebooks and grading systems
Environment and conservation
Climbing movement, technique, and intro to training for climbing

Tinkadventures is an outdoor company owned and managed by KMC members Jared and Emily, and are accredited by the Mountain Training Association to deliver rock climbing courses. They have offered a discounted rate of £100 pp for the course, but it is only for KMC members and prospectives. You can book a place by contacting Tinkadventures, or through the KMC.
