    Following on from last years successful skills share meet, we are looking to run the event again this year at the start of the outdoor climbing season. The skills share meet is designed for new and existing members and will focus on passing on skills and knowledge to help members build confidence and support their climbing progression.

    The date and location of the meet is Saturday 13th April 2024 at Head End Quarry.

    Members looking to participate can sign up to one of two themes of coaching;

    – Competent Seconding Skills
    – Transition to Lead Climbing

    As well as participants, we will be looking for experienced club members to help support by coaching and passing on their skills.

    This would be a great meet for new members looking for their first opportunity to get out. Last year had a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere with lots of encouragement and safe spaces to ask those ‘silly questions’ and help each other. I am looking to create the same environment this time.

    Given the nature of the meet, having people confirm attendance upfront will help us plan.

    Can you please email or WhatsApp message me to ‘sign up’ as a participant or volunteer coach.

    My email address is stu_dan@hotmail.com or 07854 083438 on WhatsApp.

    Thanks everyone and look forward to seeing you outside on Lakeland rock soon.
