training, climbing 142 - second tier skills

Come learn the necessary skills for cleaning routes and multi-pitch following. We will cover the following topics: setting up a 2-bolt anchor for top rope; cleaning a fixed anchor, including rappel and lowering options; clove hitch and water knot; belaying from an anchor, including lead belay for multi-pitch and belaying with a device on an anchor (possibly 2 climbers at once); and multi-pitch switch-overs at anchors. Helmets are required. You will need your climbing gear to practice skills and develop your standard kit for climbing. $5 climb fund donation requested.
