The warmer weather is nearly on us and for many you will have decided that THIS year is the year to introduce your Darling Son (DS) or Darling Daughter (DD) to the full on joys of outdoor climbing. Following on from Part 1 lets have a look at actually taking them roped climbing for the first time. As a parent of two and a Climbing Instructor (MIA) I'm writing this blog mainly with the head of a parent. This Blog is aimed at those who are competent at climbing and rigging bottom and top ropes, if you're not sure then there are loads of Instructors out there (coughs....) who will gladly teach you these simple skills. Use one who is a Member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors.
