Course Summary: This course provides comprehensive instruction in the techniques and skills required to climb far off the ground, in a multi-pitch setting. By combining Gaining Altitude with More Altitude, this 5-day course allows you to acquire all of our Level II skills at once.


Course Description:
After they’ve been introduced to the vertical world, most of our students are enthusiastic about moving on to longer, more challenging climbs.

This course combines our Gaining Altitude and More Altitude courses with one more day of multi-pitch climbing. Emphasis is placed on learning to climb smoothly and efficiently as well as developing rope-handling skills to the point where they are almost second nature.

This course was designed for people who have completed our Introduction To The Vertical World or have comparable climbing experience. For the really avid beginner, this course can be arranged to immediately follow our Introduction To The Vertical World, allowing for seven successive days of climbing.

We provide all technical equipment, including climbing shoes, for your use during this course.

If you’re an experienced climber who has been away from the sport for a while, this course is a great way to brush up on technique and get back into things while following classic rock climbs.
