On the 16th May I completed my Rock Climbing Instructor training with Climb365. What a fun (though tiring) three days – it was definitely the most enjoyable training course I’ve ever been on!
The next stage in my journey is preparing for the assessment to become a fully qualified Rock Climbing Instructor. The next six months or so will involve lots of self-led learning to consolidate all the skills I was taught during the training course – this will include honing my personal climbing skills; becoming proficient in rigging top / bottom ropes and group abseils; problem avoidance and rescue techniques; as well as group management.
I’m generally a quietly confident person, but I do tend to become super anxious when I know I am being assessed. This means I really need to be on top of my game to succeed. So I’m adopting the aged military maxim ‘Train Hard, Fight Easy’ …Wish me luck! 🙂
