Intended Schedule:

 

Day 1

At the meeting point we divide the material and hike to the climbing wall, which is meant for holding this course. Once we arrive, off we go! After the theoretical introduction it's time to practice a lot ourselves, under the supervision of an experienced mountain guide. As soon as the fingertips hurt and the energies are slowly exhausted, it's time to set up the base camp. We choose a flat with a panoramic view overlooking the alpine world, and finish the day with a camping dinner. If you want, you can still enjoy the silence of the night and watch falling stars.

 

Day 2

Today we get down to business again!

We will have a look at more complex topics of multi pitch climbing, as well as we will receive tips and tricks for power-saving movement on the rock. We will also learn the necessary techniques to get out of an emergency situation while alpine climbing. Once again it's a matter of practice, practice, practice in order to apply the learned techniques. At the end of the course everyone will be able to climb multi pitch routes independently and in safety.

​​​​​​​

We recommend participants to have a climbing level of at least 5a.
