ROCK CLIMBING DAY EXPERIENCE

This day will give you an introduction to sport of rock climbing.
You can expect to learn the fundamentals of safety and how to use the equipment in stunning settings around the Banff, Canmore, Kananakis or Lake Louise areas of the Canadian Rockies.


LEARN TO LEAD SPORT CLIMB

This program will provide you with the skill set required to learn how to lead on bolted sport routes or more popular termed sport climbing.
We will discuss site safety, hazards will identified, discussed and managed appropriately. On this as in all of our programs, we will work together to mitigate those hazards with situational awareness, good technique and personal protective equipment.


LEARN TRAD ROCK 101

Leading with 'trad' or traditional gear involves an extensive skill set, very solid movement skills and poignant protection placement strategies. This program is considered an intermediate to advanced level program so participants will want a few years of climbing experience which include being able to competently climb up to 5.8-5.9 sport routes and have a rudimentary understanding of anchor systems.


ROCK RESCUE SKILLS

Rock climbing is a subset sport of Alpinism - the main credo of our sport is self reliance. Multi-pitch rock climbing and big alpine wall climbing requires lots of experience, planning, a solid partner and a diverse set of skills not the least of which is be able to deal when things go sideways.
