Here is a useful link regarding Covid-19 advice for hillwalkers and climbers from Mountaineering Ireland. We recommend everyone give it a read
Get psyched for this year’s club trips. Here’s a few Spain highlights. Take this time to train hard, get strong and work on that tan!
QUBMC and BCC are teaming up to host a showing of the Brit Rock film festival. Details here: https://www.qubmc.co.uk/brit-rock-11th-march-2020/
Who’s psyched for the second installment of ‘Alex does a bad job of explaining things he doesn’t understand: The Climbing Edition’? (No, me neither…)
I never thought I’d see the day when a joke article would get fewer up votes than a real one, especially in this club. So, back to actual advice it is…
In the previous articles, I’ve used terms to discuss holds and moves, but didn’t explain them, so this time I thought I’d go through them, and hopefully get people using them more efficiently.
I hope you’ve all enjoyed the break from my inexpert ‘teaching’, because I’ve now returned to finish the second half of the last article I started (Types of holds and how to use them), where I promised to go through moves and body positions when climbing. However, this topic is something that really needs some form of demonstration (I seem to say that every time, don’t I?), so even though I’ll do my best, check other sources and/or bother someone with enough experience at the wall.
To the overly confusing descriptions!
