  • The Source 1118 Main Street Vancouver, WA 98660 United States (map)

Do you aspire to bigger and more involved objectives? Would you like to simplify and master the ropework and rigging of multi-pitch anchors? In this clinic we will cover some strategies for approaching longer routes with confidence and moving quickly. We’ll cover the finer points of efficient rope management and transitions, as well as more advanced techniques like simul-climbing and short-fixing. Whether on rock, ice or snow, we’ll learn how to cover more ground and move with the efficiency of a pro.
