Masterclass prerequisites
Spaces for the masterclass are very limited (6 spaces), and likely to be very popular therefore we ask that those who wish to participate get in touch with us.
1) Participants should be able to climb at least grade 5 on an indoor wall to get the most out of the session, Ideally there will be a split between 5-6a+ and people who climb 6b and above.
In addition we expect that attendees will be active members who can and will contribute to the success of the club in the following ways:
2) Folk should have attended at least 2 SCC meets
3) Confirm that you are willing to participate on future meets, and share what you have learned to others (this might include helping out at beginner’s meets, perhaps helping a beginner on an ordinary meet, and sharing your new masterclass skills at an indoor wall).

If the masterclass is heavily oversubscribed with folk that meet all the above criteria for participation we will draw names out of a hat.
