Rope work supervisor
The studies in Rovaniemi were continued during this weekend. The main theme for this 4-day period was to do Rope work supervisor module I (KTO 1 in Finnish), which is the first module in the series of mandatory modules of Finnish Climbing Association to become an authorized Rope work supervisor.
We headed into Hiidenkirnut, which is a rock climbing place near Rovaniemi and started practising belaying, knots, bouldering, rock-climbing and abseiling. After first day of climbing my fingers are sore, but the mind and body are very focused on learning more climbing techniques and rope work. The day was great and full of laugh due to the teamspirit and the attitude and joyfulness of the other students!
