YCS Finals Prep for Parents

Neil McGeachy is running a YCS Finals prep day for climbers at Transistion Exteme on 18th June.

In lieu of a prep day for parents here are some tips:-

1.       Set the lat/long of the climbing wall in your sat nav not the postcode.  Check on Google Earth so you know what it looks like and the most direct route from where you are staying.

2.       check your kid’s bag even if they say they have everything with them.
