Ropework for personal scrambling for MTA members

For a number of years we have run the 'beyond ML ropework' courses but people have either wanted to be on grade 1+ plus throwing in a bit of ropework or grade 2/3 ground, therefore this weekend is split, Saturday will be personal scrambling skills looking at ground above the ML scope (this is not a course which offers you an extension of leadership). It will look at route selection, movement over the ground and simple ropework. This day will be delivered at a 1:4 ratio.

On Sunday we will provide ropework for personal scrambling, this will be on grade 2+ ground and be at a 1:2 ratio. 

Team of North Wales MIC's will deliver these days directed by Simon Verspeak and featuring Rebecca Coles and Tarquin Shipley
