Beg/Int - Intro to Trad – Kate Rutherford, Patagonia
Want to avoid the crowds at the Red on gorgeous Fall days? There are almost as many trad/mixed routes as sport routes here - learn to lead them! This course gives you the skills to start working through safely leading a traditional climb.
Beg/Int - Multipitch Efficiency – Karsten Delap
This is your chance to learn muti-pitch systems with a focus on equipment, route-finding, belaying, safety, and speed. Multi-pitch systems can be incredibly complex, and the best way to refine your skills is to examine each part of the system by itself. In this course, we will do just this: look at every element of your system and help you to make it better. On this course, we do not climb a multi-pitch route, but use a ground school to practice the specific systems required to climb a multi-pitch route effectively. Once you have completed this course, you will be able to take the skills learned in this setting and apply them to long multi-pitch climbs.
Int - Climbing Photography and Rigging – Dan Brayack
This is an intermediate climbing photography clinic focusing on the mechanics of rigging anchors and acheiving efficient effective climbing images. Topics discussed include good and bad lighting, best times to shoot, how to safely and quickly get images which do not distract or hinder the climber, off camera flash, and bouldering shoots. Prepare to climb and photograph while others climb!
Int - Warrior's Way Intro to Falling – Arno Ilgner
Description: Being effective in climbing requires us to understand the consequences of our decisions and actions. In climbing the main consequence is falling. By understanding how to fall we diminish the chance of injury and allow us to focus attention effectively on climbing. - Target student: This clinic is not for beginners. You must have at least 6 months of continuous climbing experience and know the basics knots, belaying, and be able to climb 5.9 without falling/hanging. We’ll do some discussion but the clinic will consist mostly of falling exercises. - Equipment Needed: Harness, shoes, belay device, helmet. Plus draws and a rope (if you have them). - Clinic length: 4-5 hours
