Route Setting
Route Setting

Having delivered route setting services since 2005 we are experienced in route setting in a variety of environments for  different purposes.  In house route setting can have a major burden on resources and competency assurance of staff.  Many walls outsource their route setting to professional setters and organisations to alleviate these pressures.

Some examples of the types of route setting we have been involved with include:

  • Wall start up setting
  • School traverse, bouldering and ropes walls
  • Sports centre walls
  • Commercial climbing and bouldering walls
  • Local, regional and national competitions
  • Dry tooling events and competitions
  • Youth competitions

Traverse wall training & activities
Traverse wall training & activities

Traverse walls have become very popular in primary schools, sports complexes and community centres.  Some have been there for a long period of time and others are popping up across the country.

Having staff (including teaching, pupil support and active school coordinators) unskilled in the use of traverse walls can benefit the facility greatly.

 

Some of this training can be tied into the Fundamentals of Climbing 1 course.

 

Topics include
  • Health and safety
  • Tightening and replacing holds
  • Movement principles
  • Games and activities
  • linking use of the wall to curriculum outcomes
