WHAT YOU'LL LEARN.
We will teach you proper knots/hithces, anchor techniques, site selection and belaying techniques. We will geek out on the physics of anchors, angles and kilonewtons (kN). We will do a full gear review, teaching the strengths and weaknesses of each piece of equipment. We will teach you self rescue and partner rescue techniques. We will discuss safety at the crag, the ethics of climbing outdoors, and how to identify un-safe situations to protect yourself and your climbing partners.
This is also a great opportunity to meet other climbers that are investing in their safety, giving you a new network of partners.
Our team of professional guides are trained and certified by the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA), to ensure that you're having the best educational experience, both fun and safe, possible.
PRAISE FROM THIS CLASS:
"I was very very satisfied with the class. To be honest it was far beyond my expectation. I had previously taken a REI class and hence had very low expectations but this class was very informative and the right mix of theory and practice."
"U were very helpful, patient, friendly, and your positivity was infectious. I respect that you've made a living from experiencing nature and helping others to do so safely. I hope you got up north safely and believe that I'm recommending your course to all my friends who climb. Keep up the great work, and happy climbing!"
"Great course of instruction for beginner and advanced climbers alike who are looking to gain or reinforce their technical skills. I am confident in setting safe anchors thanks to your course. I look forward to learning from you again."
