At last, we have a venue for some dry tooling action here in North Wales. After the success of the AMI - AGM workshops that were ran at the Beacon, Steve, who owns the Beacon , has been sold on the idea of opening up the area, routes etc for the winter climber. That is great news.
So what are are waiting for get down there. ( see dates below )
Hone your dry tooling skills at The Beacon this winter
Friday night is dry tooling night at The Beacon!
Snow and ice is starting to appear on the hills so why not kick start your winter climbing with some dry tooling practice at The Beacon. It’s the perfect chance to get back into climbing with tools after a long summer, swap tips and try out new gear.
Sessions will run 7-9pm on Friday evenings and we will be setting up a dedicated area with routes, boulder problems & training circuits. The open sessions are for experienced winter climbers only and you can bring along your axes, boots (not crampons), old Dachsteins, etc. We also hope to have a small selection of tools available for you to try out.
Open sessions will be running on the 11th & 18th December ’09 and will then resume after the Christmas break on the 8th Jan’10. Cost for open sessions will be normal Beacon entry costs.
We will also be running beginner workshops in the New Year as well as master classes – dates & prices of these sessions will be advertised at The Beacon and via The Beacon web site
