This workshop presents a big step forward. It builds on the movement and technique content of F1 and F2 and combines the theory and the practical elements of those workshops being delivered in more challenging situations. An understanding of all basic techniques is now assumed. The terrain will now be more difficult involving poorer hand and footholds and now moves on to much steeper ground. More complex techniques are now required and dynamic movement is covered in detail. At this stage participants are expected to have a deep understanding of the centre of gravity and base of support and be familiar with tracking these in climbing movement. Since dynamic movement is now covered, the ability use advanced observation techniques is also required in order to track what is happening when the movement is conducted at speed.
The main topics covered are:
1st October 2017 at TCA Glasgow. Provider Alan Halewood
19th November 2017 at Perth College UHI. Provider Alan Halewood
16th December 2017 at Transition Extreme, Aberdeen. Provider Alan Halewood
