This trip is specifically for people who are looking to push their redpoint grade sport climbing. Top-roping is not allowed, unless you need to do it to safely work the moves on your project... although in that case, you should probably be picking a different project.

Also, unlike most ACC events, you will be taking many lead falls. As such, you must:
- Be able to provide a safe catch to a lead climber
- Take lead falls safely (don't get the rope behind your leg!)
- Bring your own rope. You will trust it more. club ropes will not be available.

In this series, you will pick a climb that is a full number grade above your current onsight level. You will give that climb 2 to 4 tries each time we go and climb almost nothing else (except a warm-up or two.)

During the first few attempts, you will be hang- dogging and learning the moves on your project. This will likely take one or two evenings. After you know the moves, you should lower to the ground after a fall and rest before trying again ground-up.

If you cannot figure out the moves in the first few sessions, pick an easier climb. If you get your project early, start a new one.

There will be 8 midweek evening sessions. You are welcome to work your projects outside these events as well.

The first 4 will be at Grassi Lakes, and the next 4 at Prairie Creek.

Required Items to Bring:
Rope, Harness, helmet, shoes, belay device.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Grigri or other locking-assist device. Stick clip.
