rock climb - introduction to outdoor climbing - June 3, 2023

A workshop to introduce participants to the fundamentals of belayed outdoor climbing. The covered topics will include how to tie into a rope, how to belay a climber on a top-rope anchor, how to lower a climber on a route, and how to be lowered off a route. Additional topics may be covered if time is available. Participants need to have a harness, belay device with locking carabiner, and helmet; limited amounts of gear are avilable for loan during the workshop. Rock shoes recommended, but not required. A $15 donation to the WMC rope fund is requested for the workshop. After a brief introduction to the various topics, participants will practice the skills on a couple of routes before ending for the day. Volunteers will also be needed to assist the participants and backup new belayers. Registration required to match volunteer and rope count to participant numbers.
