Awsome to be running a 1:1 coaching session for my latest beginner, Hannah! I took Hannah to the Corsham wall, where I not only instruct sessions on behalf of Wiltshire Council, but I also take my clients too! It was great to put this young lady through her paces, smashing out seven climbs in just under an hour! We looked at some footwork bits and pieces, knot tying, equipment use and basic climbing movment! I was really impressed with the skill level Hannah has shown today and cant wait to have her back at the wall with me later in the month! Well done Hannah, you nailed it! πŸ’ͺπŸ€˜πŸ‘ ~ ~ #climber #climbing #climbingwall #climbeverything #indoorclimbing #indoorclimbingwall #climbingholds #learntoclimb #climbinginstructor #climbingcoaching #movmentskills #footwork #knots #knotcraft #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

Such fun taking this young man out for some Rock-Climbing today! First pitch of "Halfway to Kansas" (HS 4a) & "Little Steve's Mersy Tunnle Affair" (S 4a) were both completed within an hour then we spent some time down-climbing and abseiling off the "Alpine ridge" (Mod). 😁 Well done Josh! πŸ’ͺπŸ€˜πŸ‘ ~ ~ #climbing #rockclimber #climb #climbs #rockclimbing #rockclimb #rock #outdoorclimbing #climbeverything #climbhard #training #youngclimbers #youthclimbing #juniorclimbers #climbingcoaching #climbinginstructor #learntoclimb #climbinginstruction #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

What a lovely evening up at @teampursuits working with Melksham Buisness Growth Group! Well done to 'Team A' who won two out of today's three events!

So proud of this pair! πŸ’ͺπŸ€˜πŸ‘ Maisy and Noah have climbed incredibly hard tonight in our junior session at the Corsham wall! I really regret not thinking to take any photos whilst Maisy was on the wall but the climbs being done by both these youngsters were awsome! Maisy just sauntered up a f6a like it was nothing, following which Noah started working on a reachy f6b... Now if you take into account the height of this dynamic duo vs your average adult climber, these two are actualy climbing at a much higher technical grade than you might at first think... Noah is rocking over onto techy heel hooks higher than his head to make moves that most adults just raise an arm for... Whilst Maisy is contorting her small figure into the most abstract of shapes to achive hand and foot matches where our adults can afford to move upward without moving their feet at all! It's a pleasure to coach these guys and to see their climbing ability increasing so dramatically! I look forward to catching up with you both next week and seeing your next climbs guys! Well done today! 😁 ~ ~ #climbs #climbing #climber #climb #climbers #climbingwall #indoorclimbing #climbingholds #climbingroutes #routesetting #indoorclimbingholds #climbeverything #climbhard #training #youngclimbers #youthclimbing #workhardclimbhard #climbinginstructor #learntoclimb #climbingcoaching #coaching #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor ~ ~ @petzl_official @teambmc @mtntraining @mt_association @joelself.outdoorinstructor

As an outdoor instructor not only is being outdoors my job but also my passion. I love waking up to a sight like this. 😍 Here is a fun little poem I know of, written by Ruba'i Leona Atkinson, that describes exactly how I was thinking when I awoke and was presented with such a brilliant sight. SUNRISE: "Another day is breaking Bright Sunshine upon waking I rise to meet the morning light More memories in the making." I hope you all manage to make some good memories today, and that you can get out and enjoy this beautiful sun aswell! I'll be instructing indoors for most of the day with some college students at the Corsham Climbing Wall - but I think the view this morning has set the day up right, even if I won'tbe outside myself! ~ ~ #sunrise #sun #beautiful #view #beautifulview #naturalbeauty #farn #farms #morning #beautifulsunrise #sunshine #hotday #warmday #landscape #clouds #sky #poem #poetry #camping #wakeup #thegreatoutdoors #outdoorlife #instructorlife #outdoorenthusiast #outdoorsman #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

Fun, fun, fun! 😁 It was a belay lesson and half with these two juniors on the beginners course! We had an array of diffrent belay devices to talk through and try out! Everything from a Petzl 'ID' to a DMM 'Figure of Eight'! Really lovely to work with you both today, great job!

Abbing off after a roped solo and peering at my gear placements, hoping they were better than my belaying (they were bomber). Massive thanks to @joelself.outdoorinstructor for the support and encouragement! I definitely need a whole bunch more practice but it was fab to try it out for the first time with supervision and encouragement from a very good friend and extremely competent climber. Lucky punter I am indeed - he's the best coach I know! #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

It was great to be helping Theo work on his clipping techniques the other day on the Corsham wall! Hr even got a few mock leads in on some of the more tricky routes! Well done mate, your skills are certainly comming together, great to see such enthusiasm from you! ~ ~ #climber #climbing #climb #climbingwall #indoorclimbing #climbingholds #learntoclimb #climbinginstructor #leadclimbing #training #trainingforclimbing #climbhard #climbeverything #youngclimbers #youthclimbing #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor ~ ~ (Please Note: Yes, that is a static rope Theo is practicing with, but being a mock lead it is not going to be weighted at all, let alone dynamicly. Static ropes are not suitable for lead climbing, but filled our needs for the purpose of these exercises. Do not lead climb on a static rope.)

A great two days spent networking and climbing at Fairy Cave Quarry with Anna from @_wildpower! We had a really intresting time discussing and trying out diffrent coaching techniques, rope work skills and equipment.

Amazing day out on Groved Arete on Tryfan yesterday! George and I hit the climb nice and early and were lucky enough to have good weather all day long! Swinging leads left Geroge with most of the long pitches but I lucked out and got to lead pitches 2, 4, 6, and the top out pitch - 8. Pitch 6, which is the "Infamous Knight's Move Pitch", was deffinatly a highlight of the whole route for me, really fun little slab to lead, although it was traditionally regarded as the Crux, in modern climbing shoes its just bliss! And the belay off the top right corner of the slab.... check out photo 8.... suuuuper exposed but so beautiful! 😍 ~ ~ #climbing #mountaineering #climb #mountain #mountainclimbing #tryfan #tryfanclimbing #climbingtryfan #snowdoniaclimbing #snowdonia #rockclimb #rockclimbing #climbinginstructor #learntoclimb #multipitchclimbing #tradrack #tradgear #trad #tradclimbing #tradclimber #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #climbinginstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

The grand ascent of Snowdon! (Sunday) What a day that was! Of course when one is in Snowdonia it is a rule that one must summit this beautiful mountain...! πŸ˜‚ This lovely group of ladies marched up no problem! Straight up from the Llanberis side of the mountain, waving gleefully to the train at times, and down the Miners Track - Via the top of course! Great work guys! You nailed it and it was lovely to see you all out on the hill! 😁 ~ ~ #walking #hiking #walk #hike #mountain #snowdon #snowdonia #mountainwalking #navigation #mapandcompass #learntonavigate #walkinginstructor #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #climbinginstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

Great rewards for this morning's early start! I've been pre-walking a route I'm doing with a group on Saturday and boy did it take my breath away! Stunning views and weather all the way around! (I even stopped twice to have a mountain-top swim!) A really, really nice route! Now to change things up Im back at Lion Rock working on my balance by practicing my no handed climbing! Good, fun way to train... I even bumped into the guys from @e3adventures with their group! (Some funky climbing going on there!

Day 8: Lion Rock After a quick morning climb with a passing RCI trainee I've been stuck in my car all day! The weather has been really poor here today, but atleast its given me some time to work on my clipping (as you can probably tell, it needs the work)! Looking forward to tomorrow now as it should be less rainy throughout the day and the sunny spells might lend themselves to abit of climbing! (Hopefully on some harder terrain?!) ~ ~ #climbing #climb #climbinginstructor #leadclimber #leadclimbing #sportclimbing #tradclimbing #rockclimbing #learntoclimb #clipping #practicemakesperfect #vanlife #trucklife #toowettoclimb #training #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

Lucky to bump into a trainee RCI (Rock Climbing Instructor) this morning at the crag! Managed to get a few super easy leads in with him before the rain came! First lead was an easy Diff (which I had soloed last night) and the second was an eliminate line that traversed out from the start of the diff route, across the line of two VDiffs to the left and continued from a belay into one of the final cracks at the top of lion Rock. (Ungraded - but roughly Vdiff). Cheers Pete for belaying, all the best with your RCI Assessment! 😁 ~ ~ #climbing #tradclimbing #climb #climber #climbinggear #tradclimber #rockclimbing #learntoclimb #buffalosystems #blackdiamond #scarpa #mountaintraining #mountaintrainingassociation #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #climbinginstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

Day 7: Union Rock Well, most of today has been spent in the car traveling to Snowdonia from the peak district so I thought I'd have a quick play on the easy stuff now that I'm here. Soloing here on Union Rock is just so gorgeous, super easy, juggy climbing! (Or if you just stick to the small stuff some fun crimp training can be had!) ~ ~ #climbing #soloing #rockclimbing #solorockclimbing #rockclimber #climber #outdoorclimbing #outdoorlife #lifeoutdoors #learningoutsidetheclassroom #climbinginstructor #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor ~ ~ @teambmc @mtntraining @mt_association @mammut_uk @mammut_absolute_alpine @blackdiamond @lasportivagram NOTE: @joelself.outdoorinstructor does not recomend solo climbing to anyone despite ability or experiance.

Day 5: Horseshoe Quarry, Stanage Edge, Millstone Edge and Lawrencefield! ~ ~ Today was varied, lots of sight-seeing, checking out Milstone Edge and Lawrencefield... and some intresting leads on stanage.... ooooh and we went to Horseshoe quarry - but that was slippy limestone so we cried that off! πŸ˜‚ The leads done today were good fun with some funky holds and moves involved! Dave managed to tick off Balcony Butress - Severe 4a, which he has had his eye on for a few years now (and he climbed it well)! Really nice climbing, company and weather - 10/10!

Day 4: Birchen Edge (Again!) Wow. Just wow. We've had such a great day today! The weather has been gorgeous all day long (if not a little too gorgeous #sweaty!) But we have loved it, the morning was spent top-roping some trickier climbs with the whole gang. Unfortunately Louise and Sarah were off home at lunch time so Dave and I pulled down the top rope and jumped into the leads! It was good fun to see Dave work on some really tough stuff before we moved further down the crag to where I did my leads. Nice VDiff to get going on and then a HS 4a (felt more like 4b-ish). After all that was wrapped up and done with we enjoyed the sunset and made our way back to the house. ~ ~ #climbing #rockclimbing #tradclimbing #tradroute #climbinggear #climbingroute #outdoorclimbing #rigging #toprope #leadclimb #sunset #beautiful #learntoclimb #peakdistrictclimbing #climbinginstructor #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

New gear day! After a good chat with Jay from @climb_cornwall a couple weeks back, I've been looking into various lanyarding systems and yesterday took the plunge. Now the proud owner of a @petzl_official Connect Adjust, I've played about with them in several contexts (personal climbing, instructing, etc) and they work really well and allow the user to be really efficient.

Definition Friday!! πŸ˜πŸ“šπŸ“… β–ͺ Van life - The process and lifestyle associated with living, eating, sleeping and traveling in your vehicle. (Usualy a van, in my case however, my 4x4 truck. - #trucklife ?) People live this lifestyle for various time frames - Some just a few days or a week, others for months or even years! β–ͺ Dirtbag Climber - A person who has allowed the sport of Rock Climbing to take over their life. In some cases costing them work, their creature comforts and time with their family. Being a dirtbag climber may involve living the van life or camping out. Broadly speaking, due to the life style these climbers lead, they are envied by other climbers but looked down on by general society. Climbing is their life, its in their every waking thought. β–ͺ Outdoor Instructor - Please see all notes above. πŸ˜‚ ~ ~ #vanlife #van #truck #4x4truck #climber #dirtbagclimber #climbing #pursuitofhappiness #climb #rockclimb #rockclimbing #bedtime #morningtime #breakfast #instructorlife #lovemyjob #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor ~ ~ @tilleyhats @teambmc @mazda_uk @mtntraining @mt_association @buffalosystems @montaneofficial @wildcountry_official @mountainequipment @joelself.outdoorinstructor

Lovely to have @benharvey56 drop back in to the Corsham wall tonight to stretch his legs (and arms)! Its always good fun to have competition climbers check back into the wall they started out on, our regular climbers can get excited for the climbs, grab all the beta going and have a good chat too! Ben has been a good freind of mine for around two years now and we've climbed together both indoors and out! Always great to see you bro, good luck with the all the upcomming comps and events - you'll nail 'em! ~ ~ #climbing #climber #climbers #indoorclimber #sportclimber #sendit #indoorclimbing #indoorclimbingwall #learntoclimb #climbinginstructor #climbingcoaching #climbingbeta #climbingequipment #ropes #rope #ropework #knotcraft #climbingholds #climbingroutes #climbinggrades #climb #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor

Great to have students from Wiltshire College back at the climbing wall with me yesterday!

Great day 'Cragging'! I know most people are probably tucked away in their offices and such but have any of you climber folk managed to venture out into the sun today?! ~ ~ #climbs #climbing #tradclimb #tradclimbing #tradclimbers #outdoorclimbing #learntoclimb #climbinginstructor #ropework #ropes #rigging #multipitch #climbingroute #outdoorpursuits #rockclimber #rockclimbing #outdooractivity #outdoorinstructor #joelselfoutdoorinstructor
