Trad Rock Course

On this one day course we learn about how to lead traditional rock climbing routes that require gear placements.

 

A good cam placement!

We first learn how to place nuts and cams. This will include protection strategies, when to use a long sling, and what kind of rack to bring on different types of routes.
