Intro to multi-pitch climbing (2 Day)

Intro to multi pitchThe Intro to multi-pitch climbing course is for those with previous rock climbing experience and aims to introduce you to climbing multi-pitch routes on bigger cliffs.

When we take our rock climbing skills into the multi-pitch environment suddenly we have a whole new set of considerations and decisions to make. The Intro to multi-pitch climbing course focuses around managing this new set of potential problems to keep your transition into the world of multi-pitch climbing as tangle free as possible!

Course content

The majority of teaching will take place on multi-pitch routes, allowing skills to be looked at in a realistic setting. The structure of the course will be fairly flexible to suit the varying levels of participants experience, however main topics to be covered may include:

  • Review of single pitch skills
  • Building belays
  • Stance and rope management
  • Switch overs at stances
  • Multi-pitch tactics
  • Retreating from Multi-pitch routes

Each day will start with a general introduction at an agreed meeting point, giving the instructor an opportunity to discuss individual aims and objectives for the day.
