DESCRIPTION

This is a end of season outdoor climbing meeting mainly aimed at beginners that have done no or very little outdoor climbing, maybe a step up from the beginners nights held at Neilston Quarry. Benny Beg is between Crieff and Muthill and is a very popular sport venue that tends to be sheltered and can be a bit of a sun trap, it's easy access, only meters from main road so no long walk in's. I will be looking for a balance of 1 or 2 beginners to 1 experienced climber.

THE VENUE
Bennybeg is a Sports climbing crag.With routes from 3+-6A.

YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO LEAD BELAY, AND LEAD CLIMB(indoors) at around 6a.
When you RSVP, you will be put on the waiting list and be moved on manually nearer the date, once we workout how much climbing gear we have available, keep an eye on Meetup in-case your moved on.

Please answer the questions at RSVP to help me balance leaders with beginners and also indicate if you require some of the basic equipment required shown below.

Gear required:- Harness, belay device and helmet(if you have one). If you have any other climbing gear, not required, but would be helpful, e.g. Quickdraws, ropes, screwgates, slings.

Any questions just email me.

This meetup will be heavily dependent on the weather as usual so keep a close eye on the status and comments the night before since it could be cancelled at the last minute. If the weather looks better on Sunday I may move it back a day with the agreement of the participants.
