Restrictions. This course is open to CFAV’s and Cadets aged 16years + from the ACF and CCF. ATC and SCC CFAV bids are welcome on a top up basis only. This is not a course for novices as the candidate does require outdoor rock climbing experience plus a good head for heights. Candidates must have successfully completed the BRC course or have the equivalent experience which must be identified on the CCAT course application.
Course Content. The Intermediate Rock Climbing is a 5-day course in a multi-pitch environment. The content includes clothing and equipment, access and conservation, mountain hazards, weather, care and use of equipment, rope management and knot tying, belaying techniques, climbing techniques, multi pitch climbing, abseiling, setting up anchors, gear placement/protection and, subject to skill level, an introduction to leading in the outdoor and indoor environment. The outcome is for the candidate to be a competent second on a multi pitch rock climb.
Notes. Candidates should be physically fit, free from injury and have a keen interest in adventurous activities. This course may be used towards a gold DofE residential project. Upon successful completion of this course candidates will be issued a CCAT course certificate and brassard badge (cadets only).
