This mentorship event is part of the AMP (Alpine Mentorship Program) organized by ACC Calgary section jointly with ACMG Guide Brent Peters.

Do you want to learn how to multi-pitch and be competent at leading simpler multi-pitch routes or be a great second? Then this event is for you.

Cost: $97. (This event is a great deal compared to other similar events)

This Alpine Mentorship Event is called pre-AMP because it is for people new to outdoor multi-pitch climbing. The only pre-requisite is that you have done some climbing and leading outside up to 5.8. This event will allow you to safely transition to multi- pitch climbing. The curriculum for the day is as follows: multi-pitch practice including building anchors, tie into anchors, bringing up a second, rope management and descending a route.

Since this event is for beginners we will not be screening participants. Who pays first, gets to go. Process to sign up is as follows:

  • Email the e-Transfer bank confirmation to the trip coordinator – Mark Kopec  - mark.kopec@gmail.com. Once I have confirmation from you that you have paid, I will move you from the waiting to the attendee list.

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.
