HOW TO SIGNUP: see James' email.

- Must be able to climb a minimum of grade 18 Indoors.

ALL CLIMBING GEAR WILL BE PROVIDED, however, if you do have your own, please do bring it along so you can practice with the actual equipment you will be using in the future.

The plan is to head to Froggatt on Friday night and camp at Wharepapa School by Bryce's Cafe ($5 per night).

Saturday will be spent teaching you how to lead climb with time for you to practice the new skills we teach you under the supervision of experienced club Instructors.

Sunday there will be further supervised practice along with the opportunity to be assessed as an AURAC Lead Climber.

For anyone who has taken part in the Anchor and Abseil courses, there will be the opportunity to be assessed on these also to become an AURAC Independent Climber.
