/ MCI Trainee Scotland
I'm looking for people who might be wanting to start climbing outdoors or improve their trad skills as part of my training for the mountaineering and climbing instructor award. I'd be looking for a wide range of people keen to learn skills for scrambling routes, multi-pitch routes and single pitch routes. I'm based in Newtonmore but will also be around the west coast, NW and Glencoe area. Send me a message if you're interested.
As a MCI trainee I do not , as yet, hold the Mountaineering and climbing instructor award which is the recognised training qualification for the instruction of scrambling and multi-pitch rock climbing in the UK. I've undergone the training course, but training for an award does not constitute a qualification.
Insurance - I do not hold insurance that allows me to receive payment or benefits in kind for instruction, but as a volunteer with membership of a mountaineering council of the UK or Eire I am insured for third party liability. These topics will need to be discussed in detail and agreed before an activity is conducted.
Is there anyone who is interested in taking this up?
I'm available on the 19th of June, but we need a least one other!
I'd be intersted in getting out, based in Higland Perthshire so can get anywhere fairly easily.
Not available on the 19th though
Hi Jude. Only seeing this now. I work Mon to Fri 9 to 5 but would be interested in getting in some climbing in Glencoe perhaps. Have done a few winter mountaineering courses but none in summer, trad climb at vdiff or so. My weekends are limited due to family stuff but would be happy to check the diary and see what could work?? Not available Wednesday am afraid.
Today, ultra-runner Paul Tierney completed a record breaking round of all 214 of Alfred Wainwright's Lake District peaks, in an astonishing time of 6 days, 6 hours & 5 minutes.
