Grand Teton Preparation - Rock Climbing & Mountaineering

Grand Teton Prep Course

Instruction in multi-pitch alpine rock climbing, belaying from a ledge, overhanging rappels and other skills required for climbing the Grand Teton or similar routes. This course is equivalent to Exum Mountain Guides' "Multi-pitch Level I".

Description:

Climbing the world-famous Grand Teton is a great mountaineering experience, and the moderate technical difficulty makes it possible for most fit and athletic people. However, certain skills are essential, and the Salt Lake mountains provide an excellent training venue.

This is a full-day course that covers the fundamentals, including equipment, tie-ins and knots, rope management, footwork and movement, belaying, rappelling, and the all important transitions during multi-pitch climbs.

UMA is closely associated with Exum Mountain Guides in Wyoming, and many guides work at both companies. The instructor for this course will be an experienced Teton guide.
