Gym to Crag Transitions

Transition from the Gym to the Crag with this Outdoor Climbing Course.

We get going with an evening gear briefing. Designed to give you the knowledge to buy the right kit for climbing outside we will discuss the ins and outs of quick-draws, trad-draws, ropes & rope bags, anchor kits, etc. Some time will also be spent discussing gear maintenance, racking and some handling tricks that will make you look like a pro. Finally, the evening will wrap up with a little chat about outdoor cragging ethics & general codes of conduct.

The following day will be spent at different crags in the Squamish area and will focus on practicing the hard skills needed to safely climb outdoors: Setting up a top rope, cleaning a top rope, lead climbing with draws, seconding a climb, cleaning a lead anchor, etc.
