Advanced Seconding Clinic

This is an advanced level clinic. You must have experience seconding already; New Follower Weekend plus a few extra weeks, ie enough to cover about 40 pitches as a second, is sufficient. You must be comfortable lead belaying already and must have experience in a multipitch environment like Seneca Rocks.


We are looking for people with experience seconding, preferably on multi-pitch climbs who are looking to do long multi-pitch routes, like Cannon Mountain in NH, or technical rock climbs in the mountains. Tetons or Wind River.

This clinic will cover things like what to do about stuck pieces, tips and tricks for moving quickly, basic aiding past cruxes, and some basic rescue skills (escaping the belay, primarily).

      If I get to go... I will have a car -- leaving from (practically) the American Legions Bridge (so Rockville, Potomac, Germantown etc are on the way)

    All, I have changed the Meet Up location to the West View lot, the launching point for Boy Scouts ledge and the Middle Earth climbing area. We will NOT be meeting at East View lot.

    If you wish to be added to the wait list, please email me with the following info: Could you talk about what kind of climbs you've followed, and at what level? What kind of objectives are you consider moving forward? What do you hope to get out of the clinic?
