WHY TAKE OUR WORKSHOPS?

We are about sharing information, teaching skills and growing the community safely. Some people like an activity to be lead or guided, we offer that too. But these workshops are about empowering the climber with knowledge. We teach the skills you need to get out there and climb harder, and improve safety for yourself and others around you. Our workshops are structured in a way that the information is compounding, constantly building on what you just learned, or learned in a previous workshop. We understand that you are thirsty for knowledge and we will give you everything we have to quench your thirst.


WHAT WE DO DIFFERENT

This workshop focuses on the skills and techniques that you will need to enter the realm of multi-pitch rock climbing.

You will learn the intricacies of rope management, how it's done well and how to avoid the birds nest and entanglement issues.

We will teach you techniques that the pros use, helping you launch beyond those that have been trying to self-teach themselves for years and still do it wrong. We teach this in a fun environment that allows you to learn and practice transitional skills without the stress of being hundreds of feet off the ground. 

Precise thoughts, organization and efficiency are essential for success in multi-pitch terrain, we will help you achieve that.


PRE-REQUISITES

In this class we will build on the knowledge you gained in your Level I Rock Climbing Anchors and Rescue Workshop (a pre-requisite for this course). 

The Level I Rock Climbing Anchor and Rescue Workshop ensures that anyone taking this course has at least the same foundational knowledge of knots, anchors, and basic rescue systems. 

  • Students should have the ability to safely belay with a plate, tube or auto-locking device.
  • Students should be able to confidently climb at a grade of 5.6 outdoors (5.9 indoors).

Our only other requirement is that you come prepared to THINK.


Our team of professional guides are trained and certified by the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA), to ensure that you're having the best educational experience, both fun and safe, possible.


WHAT IS INCLUDED: 
Professionally trained and certified climbing guides; park fees; climbing equipment (ropes, anchoring equipment, helmets, harness, shoes, belay devices).
WHAT TO BRING:
Water (2-liters); lunch/snacks; tip for your guides; sunscreen; sun glasses; sun hat.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Comfortable athletic clothing; sneakers (for when you're not climbing). If you have your own personal climbing/safety equipment bring it, if you need to borrow gear from us, just let us know your waist size (for the harness), and shoes size (for our magic climbing shoes).

We'll be heading into Stoney Point Park in Chatsworth, approximately 45 minutes from downtown Los Angeles.
