(2 posts)

    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


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


    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



    Equipment needed:

    Harness, belay/rappel device, locking karabiner
    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!
