Multi-pitch climbing course

Are you willing to climb bigger walls but you lack the necessary skills to move on multi-pitch sport climbing crags?

We offer you the chance to learn the right skills and techniques needed to climb in some of the best multi-pitch crags in the world, such as Riglos, Montserrat, Verdon, Arapiles or Potrero Chico.

Together with practice and training, this course will teach you how to lead multi-pitch routes, belay a second, build an anchor, manage ropes, read and follow topos or rappel down safe and efficiently.

Whether you are a sport climber willing to take on new adventures or a gym climber who just wants to go outdoors, this course is for you!

This course will teach you how to manage all these aspects, at your own pace in a totally practical way, so you can focus on climbing and not on untangling ropes.
