 Advanced Skills  $5000

Climbing a multi-pitch route can take a few short hours or it can take days. Many of the Squamish classics can be done in 5-7hrs, but for novices, it can take up to 14hrs. Most people are aware that novice climbers are slower than experienced climbers. Most novice climbers are unaware that the area where they used up a lot of time is at each belay station.

A novice climber will waste an average of 10 minutes setting up, transitioning and cleaning belay stations on each pitch. On a 17 pitch climb, that adds up to nearly 3 extra hours on the wall... and for some people, even longer.
We will show you have to be more efficient and save hours out of your day.

2hr lesson in the gym.

Skills Learned

  • Efficient Racking
  • Efficient Anchor Building
  • Efficient Transitioning at the Belay
  • Efficient Anchor Cleaning
