An Introduction to North Wales Rock

On Tuesday the flock were split into two groups half would go to the Indy wall for the first round of qualifying the other half were presented to us to take out to do some coaching on sport climbing ready for the next day. We headed to Castle inn Quarry an ideal venue with a good mixture of grades for the group! for some it would be there first experiance of outdoor sport climbing and a little bit of an eye opener.

We started off by throwing some top ropes in whilst talking through a few coaching points about clipping and resting!! the morning was then spent on warming up and coaching of body awareness, connectivity and body management. In the afternoon we began with some lead climbing coaching and the group got fully stuck in, for some there very first leads outdoor! The day was a great success and hopefully would pay dividends for the next days qualifying.
