This is a three day comprehensive course designed to introduce people to the world of traditional multi-pitch rock climbing. This is a perfect course to take if you are a gym climber looking to begin your transition outside or just someone who is interested in learning rock climbing from the beginning with professional instruction. After you have completed this course you will be able to consider yourself a competent second on multi-pitch rock climbs.

This course will have a maximum number of 3 participants per guide but can be done as a semi private (2:1) or private (1:1). We will cover such topics as belaying, rappelling, traditional anchor systems, gear removal, footwork and multi-pitch techniques. We will climb every day on the major landmark cliffs here in the Mt. Washington Valley including Cathedral, Whitehorse and Humphrey’s ledges. We are offering a few select dates in an attempt to match people up who are booking as singles and looking for partners but this course is also available anytime by private arrangement.
