    A rock climbing skills session will be held for members of the Section next Saturday, June 23rd - sorry for the short notice but dodgy weather and a couple of unexpected work trips out of town have disrupted preparations.

    What will be covered:

    Basic skills useful for rock climbing at the local crags

    Belaying techniques, tying in, appropriate knots
    Setting up anchors for top roping using in-situ bolt and chain anchors
    Safe rappelling techniques
    Practice climbs on a top-rope
    This session will not cover leading

    When:

    Saturday June 23rd. If the weather doesn't behave, the session may be moved to Sunday 24th.

    Where:

    At one of the local Kelowna area crags, location and exact time to be advised closer to the actual day

    Who can attend:

    Okanagan Section members have priority
    Numbers will be limited

    Cost:

    Nil

    Equipment needed:

    Harness, belay/rappel device, locking karabiner
    Helmet
    Rock shoes are not essential for most of the session but will be useful when practicing climbs

    The Section has a limited amount of equipment available that may be used by members - first to apply gets first choice!
