Yes, upon arrival in Nairobi, all members are required to participate in a day of training and orientation (unless you have made special arrangements). Upon reaching the mountains, we will go over safety procedures and other trekking concerns.
If you are rock climbing on Kenya, this will be in the areas of climbing techniques, rope fixing, ascending, descending, safety techniques, rappels (abseils), belaying, medical equipment and procedures, communications equipment, camping techniques and high-altitude cooking. For the expert and beginner alike, it is important to review these techniques in order to enhance skills, ensure safety-awareness, and learn to work together as a team. Please make sure you have studied the standard books, such as "Mountaineering, Freedom of the Hills", and are comfortable and familiar with the necessary climbing techniques, before joining our team. Thank you for being a well-prepared and safe team member!
