The local single-pitch crag has been treating you well, but there's these photos you've seen of long, enduring routes in beautiful landscapes. Let Granite Mountain Guides help you reach those goals!
Our two-day Multi-Pitch Climbing Course is designed for those who have had the opportunity to climb outdoors in the single-pitch environment. Whether you are familiar with Sport Climbing or Traditional Climbing, this course can be tailored to suit your goals. It is all-encompassing and starts off with the re-examination of anchors and then proceeds into top-belay methods. Then it focuses on efficient multi-pitch techniques and stance management. From there it finishes with the fundamental, necessary skills of how to either retreat or self-rescue in case an incident were to occur while on-route.
This course does not include instruction on how to lead climb or place traditional gear. If you wish to learn the skills of placing traditional gear or lead climbing, please look at our other course options available.
First and foremost, we want every individual to be successful and walk away knowing that they gave their personal best and had a great time outdoors. Gaining proficiency in multi-pitch rock climbing will aid in your ability to progress towards more challenging rock climbing objectives and venues, and will also help you to develop a well-rounded understanding of the basic safety principles and mechanisms that all climbers utilize.
