Intro to Big Walls
This is a two day class for experienced, multi-pitch trad climbers to learn the skills needed for grade V and grade VI big walls (technical rock climbs that take two or more days to complete).
I know how intimidating and overwhelming big walls can seem. This course breaks down the skills needed to climb a technical big wall into three categories: aid leading, jumaring and hauling. We will get hands on practice with these skills with the comfort and safety of a top rope belay every time we leave the ground.
Participants in this course must be comfortable placing trad gear, building trad anchors and have some experience on multi-pitch climbs.
