This weekend, Gwilym was in The Peak District running one of our Single Pitch Award assessments. Both candidates put in a good performance (even during the poor weather on Saturday) and both left us on Sunday evening as award holders. Well Done!
This weekend, Gwilym has been out at Chudleigh and Hound Tor conducting an SPA assessment for 2 candidates. It was sunny and warm at Chudleigh for personal climbing, top and bottom roping and problem solving. Hound Tor was dry for personal climbing and group abseils. The weekend finished with a trip to Dart Rock .
Well done to Phil and Alex, 2 new SPA holders after a weekend in the sun. Day 1 at Chudleigh (Limestone) and Day 2 at Hound Tor (Granite) saw Gwilym assessing them in personal climbing, setting up rope systems for groups, dealing with problems, abseiling, teaching at a climbing wall and general climbing knowledge.
Well done again to both of you
Gwilym and Mark were in Avon Gorge for the second day of the Mountain Training SPA course they are running for 7 candidates. Another chilly start followed by warm sunshine allowed the candidates to climb some nice route and do some more abseiling.
Gwilym and Mark have been running a Single Pitch Award Training course. They spent the day at Goblin Combe Car Park crag before going to Redpoint for the evening. Lots covered today in relation to Top and Bottom roping, Problem Solving and Abseils. Although a chilly start it soon warmed up and some of the hardier candidates were down to short sleeves
