Another Rock Climbing Instructor Training course on Dartmoor for Gwilym this weekend. A smaller course with only 2 candidates gave lots of time to look at personal and group climbing both inside and out. They visited Dart Rock, Bench Tor and Chudleigh to get a real range of experience.
Today Gwilym has been at Bridgwater YMCA running some staff training and signing off a new instructor for their climbing wall.
Gwilym, Robin and Ben were out at Haytor today working with a group from Hamp Estate in Bridgwater. Unfortunately rain stopped play by midday and they ran to the shelter of Dart Rock where it was warmer and drier. All 5 young people managed to climb and belay and learnt to put on their own harnesses and tie themselves in. At the end of the session they even had a little trip through the Dart Rock cave system.
