LEVEL I - ROCK CLIMBING ANCHOR & RESCUE SKILLS


If you are humble enough to know your limitations, smart enough to not tag along to the local crag with untested climbers, and generally thirsty for knowledge, this is the trip for you! The only prerequisite for this workshop is the ability to belay in a top rope environment.

This is a Tier 1 Climbing Workshop - taking this workshop satisfies all of the pre-requisites to be admitted into our Tier 2 - Advanced Level Climbing Workshops.

LEVEL II - ROCK CLIMBING ADVANCED RESCUE & RAPPELLING


LEVEL II - ROCK CLIMBING ADVANCED RESCUE & RAPPELLING


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

We'll work through additional knots and hitches, learn and practice leverage systems. You will learn safe rappelling techniques for individuals as well as tandem rappels with a second person and rappelling with incapacitated climbers. You will learn techniques for passing knots whether its while on rappel or when lowering an injured climber. We provide all the tools and equipment you need. Our only requirement is that you come prepared to THINK.

This is a Tier 2 - Advanced Level Climbing Workshop. Prior to taking this workshop, we require that you’ve taken our Level 1 - Rock Climbing Anchor and Rescue Workshop.

MULTI-PITCH ROCK CLIMBING TRANSITIONS


MULTI-PITCH ROCK CLIMBING TRANSITIONS


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

We'll start by addressing some of the bad habits that are common with beginning multi pitch climbers, then move into transitions from ascending to descending. You will learn the intricacies of rope management, and how to navigate many of the hazards that we encounter in multi-pitch terrain.

This is a Tier 2 - Advanced Level Climbing Workshop. Prior to taking this workshop, we require that you’ve taken our Level 1 - Rock Climbing Anchor and Rescue Workshop.

THREE-PERSON ROPE TEAMS


THREE-PERSON ROPE TEAMS


A three person rope team requires new skills and techniques to move safely and efficiently through technical terrain.

In this workshop we teach the techniques required to get your party of three or more safely up and down a climb. We'll cover parallel, caterpillar, and rope-end climbing techniques, including transitions between the three as well as discuss the appropriate scenarios for each.  We’ll teach you strategies for managing multiple ropes, and go over rescue skills adapted specifically for 3-person rock climbing teams.
