Climbing Skills & Technique Workshops

Climbing Skills & Technique Workshops

After Stu ran such a valuable and amazing ‘Self Rescue Course’ last summer, we are happy to announce that we are inviting him back to Jersey this year to run some different day workshops focused instead around climbing skills and technique.

At our AGM, some members shared that they would like support around climbing technique itself so hopefully these workshops will give the people what they want!

The workshops plan to be run over the first weekend in September (3rd and 4th) but there is the potential to run workshops over 2 separate weekends if the demand is there. Below are some workshop options – please click the button below to register your interest and from there we will know which workshops to go for and can refine the exact dates.

Spaces on the workshops are limited so it will be first-come-first-served. We are not sure the exact price for the workshops yet but the club will again be subsidising a chunk of the cost like last time.
