Moving Faster

Two Days - $648.00

Duration: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

A lighting storm is moving in quickly and you need to get off this big wall your on and get to safety.  Have you ever had to spend the night on a big wall because you could not move fast enough? Learn how to climb long multi-pitch routes quickly and efficiently. This hands-on clinic will provide you with the tools and techniques to increase your efficiency which will reduce your time on a route. Using the techniques you learn in this clinic, your climbing team can out climb another party that may be able to climb harder than you but is less efficient. You do this by using advanced systems at belay changeovers and on the descent. These changeovers are called Transitions. A Transition is a change in rope technique or anchor method because of a change in direction or a changeover at an anchor. For example, climbing up to an anchor and then rappelling off. The tools and techniques in this clinic will increase your efficiency which will significantly reduce your time on a route. Each participant will have multiple opportunities to practice selected techniques on the ground. The maximum ratio for the day clinic is 10:1. Larger groups may be accommodated with an additional instructor.  Students are expected to have their own rack, runners, rope, cordelettes, auto blocking belay device, harness, climbing shoes, and helmet.

Note:  This course is taught by Alan Jolley and is taught in Eldorado Canyon State Park in Colorado.

Avoiding The Touch

Two Days - $648.00

Duration: 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

Are you often nagged by the question “What if….” or “How would I retreat from a route if my partner or I had a minor injury?” Certainly, the elegant solution to any rescue situation is for it to never happen in the first place and often having the knowledge to solve the problem keeps it from happening. Self rescue instruction is often complex and the techniques are difficult to master. The progressions demonstrated in this clinic, simplify the techniques so you’ll be able to retain the information and be able to use the skill sets when you need them most.  Each participant will have multiple opportunities to practice selected techniques on the ground. The maximum ratio for the day clinic is 10:1. Larger groups may be accommodated with an additional instructor.  Students are expected to have their own rack, runners, rope, cordelettes, auto blocking belay device, harness, climbing shoes, and helmet.
