Climbing Training for Young Leaders

Date: 13th April 2024 Location: Awesome Walls Stockport Sections: Explorer Scouts Event Organiser: Neil Mcleece

If you are a Young Leader in Cheshire Scouts, then this event will help you learn about indoor climbing and work towards a Personal Climbing Permit. If you are new to climbing, we will help you get started. If you have already done some climbing, we will help you build towards a personal climbing permit.

Usually this is done in three parts, training, practice then assessment. This is the training part and you can come along whether you think you might want to work towards assessment or not.

This course is open to under 18 year old Cheshire Scouts who are registered Young Leaders and members of an Explorer unit (this can be a YL Explorer unit).

No climbing experience is required, only a desire to get Scouts out climbing. Though, you will find the course more straight forward if you have personal climbing experience.

The only cost is your entry to the climbing wall which is £12.50, though you will also have to hire a harness and shoes if you don’t have them.

Please wear comfortable clothing that you can move about in. You will also need a warm coat as the wall can be chilly. Bring a snack and drink.

If you have your own harness, climbing shoes and climbing equipment then please bring it all along.
