Alpine & Short Roping Course

Alpine & Short Roping Course

If you’ve found yourself faffing about on moderate ground, trying to figure out how to get up it faster, you’re not alone.  On many of the Rockies’ classic alpine routes, moderate terrain makes up the majority of the ground travelled, and this terrain can be the bane of many a climber.  This course will help you move up long routes with ease, and be back at the trailhead comfortably in time for happy hour.

Are you an experienced multipitch climber?  Do you climb a bunch on trad gear and feel comfortable teaching others how to do it?  We're considering offering courses in multipitch efficiency and trad gear use this summer.  We'd like to offer something unique to our membership, and a volunteer-run course would be an excellent opportunity for our members to develop their skills under your kind tutelage!
