Have you passed your Indoor leadclimbing exam (IV) and would you like to take the step outside, because you think it's cool and also want to be able to climb outside independently? Then this course is what you are looking for. The climbing proficiency certificate outdoor single pitch (OV-SP) is also an entry requirement for the outdoor multipitch course (OV-MP). With this license you can also enroll in the outdoor kader track.
The course consists of the following four parts:
With this course you will learn step by step everything that is important for outdoor climbing. Topics covered include outdoor conversion, abseiling, withdrawal from a route and avoiding major mistakes.
The course is expected to be given in February and/or March. The weekends take place at the start of the climbing season, in March and April. The exact dates are shown in the agenda when they are known.
The OV-SP exam is taken during a climbing weekend. To do this, after the course you have to practice the techniques during climbing weekends under the supervision of an SKB or SKI. If you have signed off your route list and an SKI has put a signature as proof that you are ready for your exam, you can take the exam next weekend. During this exam you have to show that you master the techniques and you get a case. A case is a scenario in which something goes wrong. In cooperation with your climbing partner you must complete this case in a safe manner.
During the course moments you borrow material from ESAC and you can ask for advice from the instructors on material.
The costs for this course are expected to be 30 euros.
