20 Jan 2024 Climbing & Abseiling at Dinas Rock, a practical workshop

Sat 20 Jan 9:30 am 1:00 pm

This half-day workshop, facilitated by Matt Woodfield, will look at how participating organisations can demonstrate safe practice when using the left side of the slab at Dinas Rock. We will be looking at the options available to boost the RCI qualification that some have been using as their main evidence of managing safety at this venue, now that AdventureRMS has stated that RCI alone is not sufficient. Matt will also aim to cover general good practice in rigging and personal safety, earning an MTA CPD point for eligible participants.

Meet at Dinas Rock Car Park ready to start at 0930.

Participants should bring a helmet and harness so they can safely work at height.

Maximum 12 participants. Cost £40 per organisation / business (which must be a SWOAPG Member)* – please book using the ‘get tickets’ button. Additional staff employed by an organisation / business may attend – at no extra cost – if there are spaces available – please ‘express interest’ below and we’ll allocate any available spaces nearer the time.

For clarification:

  1. Our understanding from AdventureRMS is that attendance at this specific training will be accepted by AALA as proof of additional skills competence – so anyone attending shouldn’t need separate endorsement by their own Technical Adviser (TA);
  2. If your TA already has documentation of appropriate safety systems in place, that may be adequate and you may therefore have no need to attend; and
  3. any provider may work with their own TA to resolve the issues raised around using the left end of the crag; the intention of this workshop is ‘merely’ to reduce the financial burden of this by offering a shared approach. NB it is not our intention to ‘write-up’ the results for sharing with non-participants, although this could be an option – at extra cost – if this was felt to be worthwhile.
  4. *NB the £40 cost is based on at least 5 providers attending, if there are less than this we may need to increase the price to cover our costs*
Free – £40.00
