MULTI PITCH SPORT CLIMBING COURSE
Stepping into the realm of multi pitch climbing is intimidating. We like to break down transitions and techniques so they are easy to remember and efficient. In this course, we will cover the foundations of multi pitch transitions. This course is taught by AMGA Certified Rock Guides.
1 day of ground school. We recommend adding a second day to practice the skills on a route.
