To attend this event you must already have either a T1 or T2 Hill Walking Permit. Over 18s and registered leaders only.

Booking is via https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/602797091327

The event is either for existing permit holders who would a reminder of the skills, or for existing permit holders who would like to upgrade their permit.

We will run through the elements of the syllabus that are to do with steep ground:

  • Spotting
  • Supporting
  • Confidence roping
  • Belaying up and down
  • etc.

For those with experience we can cover more items as we go along.

If you have a permit that is restricted on steep ground or scrambing then we can re-assess you to remove the restriction on the same day. We will refresh the skills with the whole group, then those looking for re-assessment can do some practice before a short re-assessment after lunch.

If you already have a full T2 permit but have not done ropework for a while then come along for a no-pressure refresher.

Many people that passed their permit some time ago, might not have done much ropework over the last few years. if this is you, then come along.

Please come along dressed for a day on the hills and bring your lunch if you are staying for an assessment.
