Technical Presentations for Outdoor Education & Climbing Communities
Improving Safety and Knowledge in Climbing
Scope of Our Technical Presentations
Decision-Making Processes For Climbing Safety
One of our core training focuses is on the decision-making process behind bolting new climbing areas. We believe that a climber's safety is intrinsically tied to the decisions made during the initial bolting phase. This understanding is especially crucial for those involved in developing new climbing sites.
Through our presentations, participants will gain insights into:
- Determining the line of a new route.
- Evaluating cliffs and understanding rock structures.
- Considering environmental impacts and ensuring minimal ecological disruption.
Customised Technical Presentations
- Materials and Equipment: Understand the different types of bolts, hangers, and anchors, their strengths, weaknesses, and best use scenarios.
- Techniques and Best Practices: From drilling to fixing the bolts and testing their stability, delve into the details of the new routing process.
- Ethical Considerations: Climbing isn't just about conquering rock faces. It's about respecting nature. Learn about the ethics of bolting and the impact of developing new climbing areas.
- Inspection and Maintenance: Bolts and anchors are not set-and-forget. Regular checks, maintenance, and sometimes replacements are necessary to ensure continued safety.
