National Vertical School
April 19 to April 22
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.
Dates: Easter 2019 (Friday April 19th to Monday Wednesday April 22nd, 2019; arrive Thursday night)
Location: Cooinda Burrong Scout Camp (western Victoria, near the Grampians National Park and Mount Arapiles)
