Route Setting Workshop & Junior Testing Session Friday 22nd May

If you want to learn about the fundamentals of route setting, then we’ve got the workshop for you!

The new BMC Route Setting workshop launched this May is for anyone new to setting or who already sets at climbing walls. Durham Climbing Centre is one of the first walls to host the workshop!

Developed by route setters Rob Napier and Ian Dunn, the workshop is appropriate for a wide range of people, including teachers who want to set problems to teach different techniques, coaches seeking to widen their skills and climbing wall staff.

Juniors Testing Session 6pm Friday 22nd May

We would like to invite all our junior climbers aged 7+ from Rock Stars Sessions, DCC Academy and other local walls to come along and ‘test out’ the problems set in the Route Setting Workshop.

Participants taking part in the workshop will receive useful feedback on their setting, and how subtle modifications can improve the climbing experience or create something very different. Juniors can test the problems and feedback to the route setters!

Cost £5 + shoe hire – please book your child’s place in advance.
