We start bright and early on Saturday 8th September with a nice water bucket challenge, testing your precision climbing and rope skills. There will be a straight up speed climbing challenge with mid rope knots too so make sure you practice your foot jumar skills. There'll be a hauling challenge just to complete the day and a tricky personal rescue scenarios to make sure you sleep well that night.

Following the events, we will be throwing some large bits of animal on the BBQ (vegetarian options will be available for those so inclined) and opening a few cold ones.

Accommodation can be found in the local area (follow the link above to our IRATA joining instructions) and we can be found in Newhaven Port. If you have a camper you can park it on the beach in Newhaven for £3.00 per night or stay in the Brighton Grand Hotel, depending on budget. If travelling, we are just a few minutes’ walk from Newhaven Harbour Station and there is plenty of parking available onsite.

If you don’t have your own kit, don’t worry, we can provide enough harnesses and PPE for the competition.

Look forward to seeing you there.

All the best, Iain
