More vertical practice! Come practice your vertical technique and tweak your vertical gear. If you don't have vertical gear, we do have loaner gear available in a variety of systems (Frog, Ropewalker, Mitchell).

I would like point out that this is the last vertical workshop before the O-9 Well trip, so if you are not yet proficient with changeovers, rebelays, and redirectionals (Wade), come to this vertical practice! O-9 Well has four separate drops and multiple rebelays and redirectionals. You should be able to safely pass a rebelay and redirectional by yourself because when you're doing that in the middle of the first 120' drop, nobody is going to be there to help. Also, since this is the last vertical workshop before O-9, please give those going to O-9 priority on the ropes this meeting so they can practice their technique and get their gear correctly adjusted.
