Tour Plan and Info

When your partner gets injured, you rappelled past the anchor, or the terrain is simply too hard, having a handful of tricks up your sleeve could make the difference between having a small misadventure or having to call for a rescue. In this clinic, you will learn and practice the skills to get you and your climbing partner to safety when your multi-pitch doesn’t go as planned.

  This is a skills intensive course and will be focused on developing proficiency with techniques on the ground, then transferring them into a vertical (single-pitch setting).   **Note: the course involves ground school and hanging in your harness working on skills and includes very little rock climbing!   This 2-day clinic will cover the following:
  • Mastery of ATC guide or Reverso (or other tube-style locking belay devices) - They are useful for SO MUCH MORE than just belaying!
  • Load transfers - belay escape, passing a knot, unweighting a stuck haul bag, etc.
  • Rope ascension
  • Rappels - preventing things from going wrong and what to do when things do go wrong.
  • Hauling systems
  • Practice scenarios that involve practical application of the above skills
Includes:
  • 2 full days of climbing instruction - expect to be out from 8:00am-5:00pm
  • Climbing equipment - personal climbing gear (harness, helmet, shoes and belay device) and group gear (ropes and hardware)
Does NOT include:
  • Meals/beverages
  • Transport to and from the climbing area
