rock climb class: multi-pitch efficiency

This training event will cover tips, tricks, and best practices for moving up and down long rock climbs with less effort, less time, less confusion and fewer epic disasters. Whether your goal is to climb "The Nose" in a day, climb "Tingey's Terror" without a headlamp or just avoid an epic unplanned bivouac on your first multi-pitch lead... this class is for you. A breakout mock "multi-pitch climb" practice session will take place on the ground. This will best facilitate learning new techniques. Bring your rack, ropes, packs, helmets, gear slings, belay devices, water bottles, haul bags and anything else you might think to carry on a long route. We will spend 2-3 hours in classroom instruction and 2-3 hours in practical exercises. Multi-pitch climbing afterword for those who choose to do so. All skill levels are welcome. There is a $10.00 workshop donation.
