Multi-Pitch Climbing Basics

Multi-pitch climbing, meaning climbing more than one rope length, is where rock climbing becomes a bigger adventure. Treat yourself to the true freedo of the hills and learn how to get a bit higher off the ground.

You will learn and experience the fundamentals of multi-pitch traditional and sport climbing on climbs from 2 to 4 pitches in length.  This will prepare you for climbing bigger walls and mountains as well as give you the skills required for climbing at crags that require these skills.
