Hey Guys

just to confirm the details for the SPA course

To complete the ( official ) training you need to be registered with mountain training link below ( at a cost of £39.00 one off payment).

However if you would like to come along for the learning and not the award you can…

I do need 4 registered candidates

I aim to deliver a fun informative training covering the syllabus as recommended, but more importantly i want to share my experiences of teaching climbing professionally for the last 25 years ( and delivering SPA training/assessments since the mid 90’s) , and inspire you to get out climbing.

As mentioned the training will take place on saturday 27th and 28th and sunday with a follow up session on the wall on Monday evening.

Venues to be confirmed on the day in light of weather and conditions. I suggest we make contact via mobile about 8.00 and aim to be at the meeting place by 9.30 ( the days are pretty full so we haven’t got time to be late …. )

As long as you have climbed outside, and enjoy climbing there will be something in this training for every one ( i am not to fussed if you have not lead any climbs .. and there will be no pressure to lead on the weekend unless of course you resist ) .

Here is a brief description from mountain trainings website

Single Pitch Award Overview
