The first Rock Out crag days of 2016 have proved to be a great success and have given me the opportunity to work in some great locations with some great climbers. The last two events were held at Kyloe Crag and Bowden Doors, and they were both hugely enjoyable days prompting some great feedback. The next Rock Out crag day, which has already sold out, is to be held at Great Wanney near Ridsdale and will take place on Sunday 8th May. Because of their success, I'm very pleased to be able to announce that there has been a number of additional dates set through June and July. The current Rock Out dates are:
- Sunday 8th May 2016 (sold out).
- Sunday 22nd May 2016 (sold out).
- Sunday 5th June 2016.
- Sunday 19th June 2016.
- Sunday 3rd July 2016.
- Sunday 17th July 2016.
- Sunday 31st July 2016.
Rock Out crag days give new and improving climbers the opportunity to get out into Northumberland and climb on real rock. The days usually begin at around 10.00am and allow participants to climb well into the afternoon, under the supervision of a qualified instructor. The atmosphere is sociable and relaxed, and the routes are chosen to provide climbers with a challenge without being too difficult.
Climbers of all ages, from 9 years and up, are welcome to join in. Under 18s must be accompanied by a participating adult or participating, legally recognised guardian. Harnesses and helmets will be provided for you, but if you have your own equipment, and it's in good order, you're welcome to use it. Climbing shoes are not provided. If you have your own climbing shoes, though, you are certainly welcome to bring them with you.
