What are the qualifications required for route setting?
Since route setters often use ropes or mobile elevating work platforms, they must be trained in working at height and in specific route setting techniques to ensure the highest safety standards.
It takes real skill to set good routes. Whether a climbing route is excellent or mediocre hinges on the route setter’s ability to create movement, balance, and the right balance of difficulty in line with the standard grading system.
The EP Climbing team of qualified and experienced route setters is available to set routes for you or train your staff.
