MULTI-PITCH SKILLS

This one day course is designed for climbers who have practiced some single-pitch traditional lead climbing and want to make the transition to the multi-pitch environment. A morning of theory is followed by a short multi-pitch climb in the afternoon. Instructional topics include:

  • Safety and hazard recognition in the multi-pitch environment.
  • Route selection, equipment and multi-pitch preparation.
  • Rope handling and belay station management.
  • Lead and top-down belay techniques.
  • Protection strategies and route finding.
  • Multi-pitch retreat and contingency plans.

Upon completion of the program, participants should be able to safely attempt a straightforward multi-pitch climb.  Combine this course with Traditional Lead Climbing - 1 Day and get 10% off both programs!
