Multi-Pitch Rock Climbing Clinic - Scheduled Course

Multi-Pitch Rock Climbing Clinic

Introduction to multi-pitch climbing, placing protection, building anchors and overhanging rappels (1 guide / 3 climbers).

Description:

This class is meant for climbers wanting to follow multi-pitch climbs, build natural protection anchors, and generally progress to the next level in their climbing.

Participants will practice placing and equalizing pro, and then climb a multi-pitch route. Everyone will tether in on ledges, belay both a follower and a leader, and break down an anchor.

Efficient climbing technique and an introduction to crack technique is usually included as the group ascends Steort’s Arete, Schoolroom, Pentapitch or a similar route. An overhanging, multi-pitch rappel and some belayed down-climbing will be part of the day, if possible.

Finally, the guide will help participants improve their proficiency on more difficult climbs during a top-rope session. Body positioning, effective use of feet, rests, lie-backing, jamming, stemming, and other skills will be addressed.

This course usually starts around 8AM.
