Day 1: Rope skills training

On the first day of the trip, we will meet at a convenient park and ride in Seattle. From there, we will carpool to a predetermined location, where the course will begin. Today we will be going over rope skills, communication and how to use traditional protection. After some practice climbs, we will relax in camp, while learning how to properly read maps.

Day 2: Multi-Pitch rock climbing

Today, we will practice multi-pitch climbing. You will climb several multi-pitch routes, while refining the skills of rack protection, how to manage belays, and much more. At the end of the day we will either return to the same camp, or drive closer to our alpine climb.

Day 3: Alpine climbing

Depending on the distance and difficulty level, as well as your skill level, we will choose different alpine climbing locations, where you can practice for the next day’s big climb. At the end of the day, we will rest in a campsite in the mountains.

Day 4: Final climb

On the last day, we will climb a classic alpine route, descend, return to camp and head back to the trailhead. From there, we will drive back to Seattle.
