Dry Tooling at Transition Extreme this winter



Dry Tooling Evenings at Transition Extreme Sports Ltd. From 7th November on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 18:00 to 22:00

Over the winter we'll have routes set up outside on our Ropes Course for those of you looking to get some training in before and during the winter season.

If you're already a winter climber or into your dry tooling then this is for you! There's a registration form to complete and £5 admission to pay per evening. Existing memberships for the climbing wall are not valid.

Some routes will allow the use of crampons as well as axes as there's plenty of things to swing your axes at. Others are more suited for winter boots or rock shoes if you're that way inclined.

Throughout the evenings we'll have a member of the climbing team 'floorwalking' to answer any questions and do our 'keeping an eye on safety' thing.

No instruction on winter climbing will be available and no axes or crampons will be available for hire. There are a number of wee rules and guidelines which you can find on the registration form.

The competition is designed to allow participants of all abilities to be able to take part in the first round, which comprises of Bottom Rope and Lead Rope climbing split into male and female categories in 3 different age groups. Competitors must compete on behalf of their school. This can be done either as part of an instructed session (organised by the school), or as an individual (possibly with a parent or guardian) at their chosen wall.

Entry to the competition is free, however normal entry and instructor fee's are applicable.

Climbing Walls taking part in the 2013 Scottish Schools Climbing Competition are;

Glasgow – Glasgow Climbing Centre
Aberdeen - Transition Extreme
Edinburgh - Alien Rock
Stirling  - The Peak  Gairloch - Gairloch Leisure Centre

Round 1: Starts 26th November 2012 and finishes 21st December 2012.

The top climbers from the first round will be invited to take part in the Grand Final to be hosted at the Glasgow Climbing Centre on 9th March 2013.

Scorecards for the competition will be released a couple of weeks before the Qualifying opens and can be picked up at the reception of your chosen wall.

The SSCC is run by the Glasgow Climbing Centre in conjunction with the Mountaineering Coucil Of Scotland and St Aloysius College, Glasgow.
