Clinics at the Portland Alpine Festival are designed to give you the skills to go to the next level in your preferred sport. We have clinics for beginner, intermediate, and advanced climbers. Taught by our host of professional athletes, all clinics are sure to impress and inspire.
This clinic will cover: the basic knots used in rescue situations, pulley systems, rappelling with a partner, a short discussion of med kits on route, and a discussion of a number of real-world scenarios.
To prepare you for these remote ranges, we'll get hands-on practice in a controlled environment, covering big wall gear and vocabulary, aid placements and progression, ascending a rope, cleaning roofs and traverses, hauling, and more.
