Traditional Lead – Multi Pitch Skills Combo
One of our most popular programs. The course combines the 1 day traditional lead climbing course with the multi pitch skills course in the same weekend.
On day one we will focus on the fundamentals of placing bombproof protection, building solid anchors, and lead climbing strategy. Participants can expect to progress from mock lead climbs with a back up top rope to supervised real leads. A guide will be coaching from an adjacent rope for extra security and maximal learning outcomes.
On day two we will build on the previous days curriculum adding multi-pitch systems such as rope and belay station management, alternating leads, and multi-pitch descent systems. We have perfected our course structure by having students ascend and descend “mini multi pitch climbs”. Students will lead one another up real climbs where instructors will again supervise from nearby fixed lines. Our focus will be coaching belays, station management, and transitions. Day 2 will run at a 2:1 student to guide ratio.
By the end of the weekend successful participants should feel comfortable tackling classic multi-pitch climbs such as Diedre and Skywalker.
