Learn to Lead (Two-Day Clinic)
Day(s): This 2 day course is available Friday & Saturday or Saturday & Sunday.
Sponsored By: Outdoor Research
This is an advanced level course for experienced climbers who feel ready for the "sharp end", and will have incredible instruction from guest guides.
Leading is very rewarding but can also be dangerous and scary if you are not prepared technically, physically and mentally. The course covers advanced anchor & belay systems, racking of gear, rope management, and route finding while on a multi-pitch climb. Day two will deal with placing screws from awkward stances, using alternate protection systems, and focusing on protecting the climb, not the move. We will cover advanced anchor & belay systems, single and double rope management, descending options and route finding while on multi-pitch climbs.
NOTE: On Saturday, this clinic meets at 7:30 AM.
