This 2-day rock climbing course is the logical follow up to the Basic Rock Climbing Instruction Weekend or for the indoor gym and/or sport climber who wants to further develop traditional-style (trad climbing) rock climbing skills. The focus of this rock climbing seminar is to provide a delicate balance of anchoring skills and to improve your rock climbing techniques. You will learn to bypass inappropriate and time-consuming anchor setups and to create quick efficient setups, minimizing risk and maximizing rock climbing time. And it's oh! so important in helping you assess for yourself, the condition of someone else's anchors you may well be climbing on.
Day 1 will begin with understanding concepts of protection (ie, spring-loaded camming devices, stoppers, hexes) and what makes a good protection placement. The second half of the day will be spent on the rocks improving your rock climbing skills.
Day 2 will focus on anchor systems: equalizing with slings and cordelettes; incorporating redundancy in anchors; prevention of shock loading. The remainder of the day will again be spent on the rocks, being challenged on top-roped climbs up to 5.10.
All trips are tailored to the guide's discretion.
