2024 marks the first year of the Rick Allen Skills Award. This new, week-long course will provide four AC members with guidance and instruction that will help them to progress to more challenging and commiting alpine routes.

The course is funded from a generous bequest left to the Club by our late member Rick Allen which will allow participants to access high-quality instruction at a markedly reduced rate. In line with the approach that Rick took with his own climbing, the course will focus heavily on the development of independent decision-making skills.


The RASA will run alongside our Summer Alpine Meet and will also involve a preparatory weekend climbing in Scotland.

You can find out more details about the course and download an application form here.
