Climbing Refresher & Practice - OUTDOOR
This event is meant for those with already a basic outdoor climbing experience and want to practice/get a refresher on climbing and belying.
Time & Location
01 Oct 2022, 10:00 – 16:00
Ras Al-Khaimah, Ras Al-Khaimah - Ras al Khaimah - United Arab Emirates
About the Event
The instructor will set up few top-ropes (Lead is allowed only on proven capability) with various difficulties, grades and styles. You can then practice climbing on top rope and belaying, supervised.
If you are still a beginner and or looking to get back into it after an extended break this would be a great trip for you.
It is also a great opportunity to meet climbing buddies!
This trip will be limited to 12 participants only, to ensure each person has adequate time on the rocks!
- You can belay with a Gri-Gri (or equivalent auto-blocking belay device)
- You have your own harness, shoes and helmet (if you don't pls write to us)
- NICE TO HAVE: you have rope and quickdraws
We will be climbing from morning to afternoon. The location of the meeting point will be shared to the participants before the event starts
INCLUDED IN THE FEE
Certified Rock Climbing Instructor for the whole day.
You need to reach the start location with your own car.
If you don't have a car, there will always be people joining from Dubai or Abu Dhabi and they can car pool you.
WHAT TO BRING
You will need to bring lunch, snacks, water, drinks, etc for the day. You should also dress appropriately for being outdoors whether you prefer long sleeve, short sleeve shirts, shorts/pants, is your own preference but definitely have a jacket and maybe wool hat and gloves in case it gets cold or rains. We still will climb if cold and even if rain is not too much. Also bring appropriate sun protection, i.e. sunscreen, lip balm, sun hat, sunglasses.
You should have sturdy shoes for walking in the wadi to the crag but you may want sandals or flip flops while hanging around at the crag in between climbs. I also recommend to bring a camping chair so you can sit and relax when not climbing or belaying.
If you have climbing shoes, harness, helmet please bring them. If you don't have climbing shoes then plan to wear solid sneakers or hiking shoes. weak/flimsy shoes will be no good and neither will big, bulky hiking boots. If you don't have a harness or helmet I will have extras on hand. All other gear and equipment will be provided.
