Skill Focus: Multi-Pitch
Our Focus Courses are designed to improve and hone your technical skill set by concentrating on one topic at a time. Typically shorter in length than our Curriculum courses, these courses are a great way to brush up on a particular skill, or dial in your education where you feel you need it most.
Duration: 1 Day
Who should take this course?
This course is best suited for individuals who already possess an introductory level of experience with multi-pitch climbing, who wish to hone their multi-pitch efficiency and techniques.
This 1 day Focus course is filled with useful tips and strategies relating to the multi-pitch environment. From belay transitions to rappel set ups and more, students will have the opportunity to discuss different approaches and best practices, while gaining hands-on experience and instructor feedback.
