Do you want to learn the basics of rock climbing? Then keep reading! I offer here a course including theoretical and practical classes, as well as a rock climbing outing. The theory classes will take place at Capão Raso, in Curitiba. Then the practical classes will be in Quatro Barras. Finally, we will climb at Morro do Anhangava.
My goal is to teach you the basic technical skills to progress on climbing routes in a safe and independent way. We will also go through climbing history, ethics, leading techniques, rappelling and safety procedures. The course lasts in total 20 hours.
It will include the following topics:
– Introduction to rock climbing equipment (rope, harness, carabiner, quickdraw, abseiling device, sling, cord, helmet, rock climbing shoes).
– Introduction to climbing knots (figure of eight, clove hitch, double fisherman knot, Italian hitch, overhand knot, Prusik knot).
– Rock climbing concepts (rock climbing types, climbing grades, equalised belay station, how to belay, backing up a rappel, setting up intermediate protection, climbing ethics and environmental sustainability).
I propose to you the following program for this 4-day course.
Meeting Rua Winston Churchill 1481, Capão Raso, Curitiba, where we have the theory class. It will be split in 2 days, during 4:30 hs each day. On this first day the class begins at 6PM.
Theoretical class part 2, starting at 6PM.
We leave at 7AM from Curitiba. Practical classes in Anhangava and Quatro Barras during the whole day. Return to Curitiba.
Same program as day 3 for the second part of the practical classes.
