SCMCSCMC - Training

Everybody has to start somewhere and the Club organises training sessions and special trips (often on a mid-week evening at Snailbeach, although training venues do change depending upon the activities involved) to allow novices to learn the necessary skills without pressure.

We mainly use Single Rope Techniques (abseiling and prussiking) and experienced Club Members are always willing to teach these skills and advise on the necessary personal equipment.

As SRT equipment is expensive the club has a few sets of equipment that can be lent to beginners during traiing sessions and for the first few trips.

Club members regularly practice SRT techniques (Kelvin Lake)
