Getting the best out of the Milestone Buttress
Time & Location
About the Event
Ah! the Milestone Buttress, an old favourite of the mountaineering instructor. But it can still go wrong. Are you taking the right people here? At the right time? Are you doing enough climbing? Are you aware of the varied ways of descending? Do you know what to do if the classic routes are full?
All too often climbing instructors don’t get the best out of this venue, on this workshop we’ll climb around four different routes, and we’ll look at four different descents.
We’ll meet at 8.00 am and carry on as long as we can, aiming to get three or four different descents completed. We’ll cover how fast you need to climb, alternatives descents, what to do if the classic routes are full, some history and a bit of enviro. You'll get one AMI CPD point.
