Success for Scottish seminar

Edinburgh International Climbing Arena hosted the ABC’s one-day Scottish Seminar on 31st August 2017, kindly supporting the event by providing use of their climbing wall and meeting rooms for free.

Eighteen delegates from a variety of both ABC and non-ABC walls attended, with an array of workshops arranged by Alan Halewood. These included:

  • Crowdfunding for walls (Oliver Millington of Three Wise Monkeys)
  • HSE and accident investigation (Frances Kelly, HSE Investigator)
  • Competition routesetting (Rob Mackenzie, Climb Scotland)
  • Avoiding and solving problems, including auto-belay issues (Glenn Gordon, EICA Ratho), and
  • Bouldering: how to give inductions and training, including falling and spotting (Rob Sutton, The Climbing Academy Glasgow)

Thanks to all who made this day so successful, and please let us know what topics you’d like us to cover on future seminar days.
