ClimbScotland is looking for a Head Setter to support the delivery of their domestic competition programme, as well as the development of the route setting workforce and opportunities in Scotland.

Mountaineering Scotland is the nationally recognised representative body for climbers, hillwalkers and ski tourers, and is also the governing body for competitive sport climbing in Scotland. As part of this, the ClimbScotland initiative focuses on climbing, including squad and competition programmes in Scotland.

ClimbScotland recognises that athletes need to be able to train and compete on relevant terrain (routes/blocks) and to do this, they need to develop their setting workforce, working in partnership with climbing facilities. Therefore, they are looking to recruit a Head Setter to lead on the organisation of route setting to deliver their domestic competition programme, as well as to lead on the development of their route setting workforce.

Part of this will require working with the GB Climbing Head Setter, ensuring relevant and up to date development opportunities are made available to those that are on their endorsed setting pathway. 

This is the beginning of an exciting series of developments for 2024 and as such, ClimbScotland are looking for a forward-thinking, technically-able and experienced setter.
