Following several entries from more advanced climbers we are changing the novice category to an optimum time event. We will run the climb and work out what an optimum time would be for a novice climber to carry out the climb correctly and achieve all the stations. This “optimum time” will be kept confidential and at the end of the contest the closest climber to this time will win the event. Unlike the Expert level your climb will not be based on fastest time so should encourage best practice and safe climbing. Your climb will starting from a top station you will complete a number of simple tasks in the canopy before returning to the ground.
