This will be a day of trad climbing practice with priority for the Women's Mentor Group. For those who are new to trad climbing, we'll go over different types of gear and how they work. You'll practice placing and removing gear on the ground so that you can second trad climbs as well as working toward leading. If you have experience, come out and get some mileage. We can run mock leads on top rope as well as real leads. There are also routes available in the area for sport leading and practicing multipitch techniques (belaying from above and rappelling). If weather is poor this will be postponed until the following weekend.
Required Items to Bring:
Harness, helmet, rock shoes, belay device, personal anchor

Recommended Items to Bring:
draws, protection, ropes, belay gloves (leather palm), guide books, ambition

Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons.
