Mid-Week Mum's Week 4 - Rock Climbing.
Time & Location
About The Event
COST: £35pp (only for this session, not the entire series)
LENGTH: around 2 hours - ALLOWING ENOUGH TIME FOR SCHOOL DROP OFF / PICK UPS
SUITABLE FOR: Mums only!
This regular Tuesday morning meet up is desigined for Mum's to meet up with other parents and have a great adventure in the outdoors without any kids for a couple of hours. Each week we will do a different activity in the Mournes area, followed by teas, coffees and buns to celebrate the awesome adventure we've just had and to make new friends with other parents.
The fourth and final week of our Mid-Week Mum's Adventure series will start off just outside Castlewellan at the beginner firendly climbing venue of Altnadue Quarry.
On this 2 hour session, you'll get to push your limits in a chille out and relaxed environment, always looked after by our experienced and fun Rock Climbing Instructors. We'll set up a range of climbs suitable to beginners and intermediates so that you can have the perfect level of challenge for you, and our instructors will give you loads of top tips on how to climb as efficiently to save the all important arm strength - you don't need to be super strong to climb, balance and footwork is the most important thing to have.
After climbing to your heart's content, we have the option of either more climbing, or if you fancy something else, we can strap you in at the top of the cliff and let YOU lower yourself over the edge! We'll have you on a safety back up rope to keep you safe, but you'll be in charge of the descent - what a buzz!
At the end of this morning of active meditation, we'll pop off the harnesses and sit at the lovely picnic area in the quarry to have our weekly buns with fresh hot tea and coffee, before sending you off refreshed to pick up the kiddos on time from school - with plenty of great stories to tell the other mum's at the school gates!
People with a fear of heights
We want people with a fear of heights! Most of our instructors have at one stage been afraid of heights themselves, and we can help you overcome your fears at a gentle and encouraging pace so that you can love climbing as much as we do! We make it our aim to push your boundaries to just the right level, and have an mission that everyone on our sessions goes home feeling less afraid than when they came in!
