Participants should be competently leading single pitch routes of very difficult / severe.
You should also be reasonably fit and comfortable on exposed crag situations.
This course will weather permitting spend much of the time on the crag. Don’t expect to be guided on this course, you will be working hard learning the difference between the single and multi pitch crag environment.
On the crag we will cover a variety of belay and rope systems which will be useful to the multi pitch climber.
We will also look at how to avoid and deal with simple mid multi-pitch crag problems.
Who is the course for?
