You know you’ve felt it – gazing at a large cliff that’s longer than one rope length, the urge to scale a large cliff is a magnetic force to climbers and one of the reasons some of us get into the sport of rock climbing. If you wish to push beyond top roping and single pitch climbing, this day long course is the one for you.
Many rock climbs across the world require the skills to build an anchor and bring your partner up before casting off on another pitch. The legendary cliffs of Yosemite Valley are filled with this style of climbing and without the skills to climb more than one pitch your options are limited.
After a thorough review of basic climbing technical systems, we will learn the new skills needed to safely move out of the single pitch world. The day culminates with an ascent of a multi pitch rock climb, which will put all our new skills to use.
Our intro to multi pitch climbing will take place either on Donner Summit in the Tahoe Truckee region, or we can arrange a course to take place on the majestic cliffs of Lovers Leap in South Lake Tahoe.
