excellent five-day program is designed to accelerate a
climber's skills to a new level in a short period of time.
The goal is to create an independent lead climber in a
single week and the course is best suited to those who
have become comfortable top-roping indoors or have a small
amount of outdoor experience. Because of the length of
the program, varying skill levels can be accommodated.
The course begins with an introduction to crag safety
and, over the course of the week, the following topics
will be introduced:
for rock climbing.
techniques (top-rope, lead and top-down).
anchor construction (bolts, trees and multi-point).
skills (crack, slab and face).
climbing techniques for leading on bolts.
protection placement, evaluation and removal.
construction with traditional protection.
climbing strategy for traditional crack climbs.
- Multi-pitch systems.
from a climb that proves to be too difficult.
Basic self rescue techniques (if time allows).
ongoing coaching and feedback from the guide during this
five-day program provides a learning experience second
