About the Event
Women's Climbing Weekends have a wonderfully simple aim : to get more women out rock climbing! They are social and inclusive weekends for anyone who identifies as a women to come along and climb, chat and learn. This weekends and course is run at a 1:4 ratio, so is a small and low key event.
The Learn to Lead Weekend is for anyone who is looking to begin lead climbing outdoors. We will be focus on trad climbing, but may touch on sport climbing too. The majority of both days will be spent at the crag, learning. We wil go to a different crag on both days.
We will cover:
- Guide books
- Gear Placements
- Anchor building
- Placing lead gear
- Movement coaching.
The course is run at a 1:4 ratio, so you get plenty of instructor time.
You will all need to bring:
- Suitable shoes for walking on uneven ground (boots or trainers)
- Water proof trousers and jacket
- Warm layers
- Suitable clothes to be outside and active in for 2 days
- Food and drink for the days climbing
- Some money to visit a cafe
- Rock climbing shoes (get in touch if you don't have any/can't buy or borrow some)
You will all need, but can borrow at no extra cost:
These days are designed to be relaxing and informative. We will meet at Caban Caffi, Brynrefail at 9.15am in the morning, before heading out into the hills to find a good crag for learning :)
If you have any questions, let me know!
