Capel Curig Training Camp
Restrictions. This course is open to CFAV’s and Senior Cadets 16 years + 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 a combination of some mountaineering and rock climbing experience plus a good head for heights. Candidates must have successfully completed the SMF and BRC award or have the equivalent experience which must be identified on the CCAT course application.
Course Content. The Introduction to Mountain Scrambling (IMS) is a 5 day course. The aim of this course is to introduce students to mountain scrambling on easy to moderate graded scrambles. This is a natural progression in summer mountaineering for any Senior Cadets or CFAVs who have completed the SMF and/or anyone who is seeking additional log book experience. The content includes clothing, equipment, rope management, belaying, guide book use and route selection. The outcome is for the candidate to be a competent member of a team led by a qualified Mountain Instructor.
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).
