This trip is for those who are interested in getting experience on a multi-pitch on a relatively easy, but still really fun climb with a great position. No previous multi-pitch experience is necessary, but you must know how to safely belay a leader and rappel. The climbing on the Rundlehorn is not difficult (5.5 sport), but there are 11 pitches in total (all ~25m), so we'll have plenty of opportunity to practice efficiency & work on our transitions. Depending on the skill set of the team, I can either lead the entire climb, or we can take turns leading if participants are keen to do so (I'm happy either way). If we finish early, we can head over to Wasootch to get some more laps in if people are still stoked to keep climbing, or head back to the campsite if we are done for the day. Expected climbing time is 4-6 hours including a short approach & rap descent.

Raymond has joined up as a leader of another independent rope team, so now the max number of participants is up to 6.

Required Items to Bring:
Personal climbing gear (Minimum is helmet, harness, belay device, personal anchor, two locking carabiners, comfortable climbing shoes), food & water for the day, appropriate clothing for the weather forecast, small backpack you can climb with.

Participants will be selected in late May/early June. If I haven't climbed with you before, please send me an email with a description of your climbing experience. Note: your position on the wait-list is totally irrelevant to whether or not you'll be selected for the trip.
