Mountaineering Scotland offers support to our affiliated junior, youth and student climbing clubs (both Mountaineering Scotland and ClimbScotland clubs) with reduced price workshops. The maximum number of places on the course is eight. NB: only members from an affiliated club can attend that club's workshop. Attendees will have to pay the normal entry fee to the host climbing wall on the day, and are responsible for ensuring they have all the necessary equipment.
Bookings should be made by the club officials directly to Kevin Howett in the first instance (to arrange a date and venue and obtain application forms). The club officials are responsible for gathering the completed application forms from those attending the workshop and emailing them to Mountaineering Scotland at least two weeks prior to the workshop [NB: only those members registered with Mountaineering Scotland as members of the club are eligible to attend].
Student club officials are responsible for arranging a single payment of the workshop fee to Mountaineering Scotland one week prior to the workshop.
