Event Navigation

Applications are open for the National Vertical School, being run by Victorian Branch over Easter 2019. This intensive training event is open to Venturers aged 15+, Rovers, and Leaders. Participants new to rock activities will have the opportunity to choose between abseiling, caving, and top-rope climbing, while those with prior experience can develop skills in lead (trad) climbing or vertical rescue.

The School will introduce newer participants to a broad range of technical skills, for example:

  • different abseiling techniques
  • safe belaying, and
  • rigging anchors and belays on natural surfaces.

The lead climbing and vertical rescue streams will focus on technical aspects of those activities. There are also a small number of places available for trainee instructors.

Location: Cooinda Burrong Scout Camp (western Victoria, near the Grampians National Park and Mount Arapiles)
