A NATIONAL BUDDY CHECK CAMPAIGN
Don’t be shy, #CLIMBSAFE with a buddy check
So, we can all admit the last 18 months have been interesting, and amongst a lot of things we didn’t get to do a whole lot of, climbing was one of them. Although thankfully we are back open and it’s great to see regular faces, and new ones, back in our gyms, we have noticed an increase in near misses from competent, seasonal climbers.
To protect all our members, we are launching our CLIMB SAFE campaign starting with, CHECK OR DECK Parthian Climbing x BMC a national buddy check campaign, but we need your help. The team at Persona have created this super slick artwork, which you will see up and around our centres in the coming weeks, but we want something a little more home grown, so that is why we are….
As part of our ongoing ‘Climb Safe’ campaign, we have an exciting competition for all young Parthian climbers. We challenge all young creatives to design a poster to encourage pre climb buddy checks between climber and belayer. To enter you must be U18yrs of age and be registered at one of our Parthian Climbing site and we want you to be as creative as possible.
Along with some great prizes, we are offering the opportunity for the winning poster to accompany a group wide safety campaign.
