The BMC Peak District Youth Meet is for young climbers (12-17 years) who want help making the move from indoor walls to climbing outside, and will be held in the Froggatt area over the weekend of 25-26 March 2017.
The meet will be based at the Bob Downes hut, the Climbers’ Club hut located in the woods below Froggatt Edge, where climbers will gather from Friday evening, so that young climbers can be teamed up with experienced climbers.
People can arrive from 19.30 hrs on the Friday evening and meet up with their climbing partners for the weekend. On Saturday morning, James will offer a short belay workshop before people head off to the cliffs.
Food will be supplied on the Saturday night and an evening talk will be given by a well-known mystery guest climber. Youths and volunteers will need to supply their own breakfast and lunch for both days.
Sunday will involve more cragging with everyone expected back by 16.00 hrs to be picked up by parents or guardians soon after.
The meet will cost £20 which goes towards the two nights’ accommodation and the food on the Saturday night.
