Beginning Rock Climbing:
This course will

rope maintenance and safety procedures on climbing top ropes.

a harness, belay device, and understand the importance of
communication with your partner.
This class is for
the climber who has a general understanding of basic climbing
techniques and would like to learn to follow multi-pitch climbs.
We will cover gear placement and removal, anchor building
and removal, and belaying a lead climber. By the end of the
course the climber should be able to follow a leader up a
multi pitch climb and critique the safety of gear placements
and anchor systems.
This class is for
a climber who understands climbing techniques and systems
who would like to follow harder climbs. The guide will conform
the class to fit the needs of the climbers participating.
Climbers at this level will be experienced and only need pointers
to improve weak spots in their climbing technique.
This course is
for a climber who would like to learn to lead climb and set
up top ropes. The climber will be put on mock leads and practice
placing gear. The climber will learn to set up practice anchors
and belaying a second climber on multi-pitch climbs. They
will be critiqued on climbing technique, gear placements,
and safety and given areas to improve.
This class will
be for physically disabled people who wish to learn to rock
climb. We will have both a climbing guide (to work on basic
climbing techniques) and an adaptive coach (to work on adaptive
techniques) in each class to develop the climbers.
