Rundlehorn Multipitch – Sport climbing
– AMP 2
This mentorship event is part of the AMP
(Alpine Mentorship Program) and is organized by
the ACC Calgary section jointly with ACMG Guide
Brent Peters and PeakStratagem. Either Brent or
one of the PeakStratagem assistant guides will
be teaching this event.
This event is for climbers who want to put
into practice their Multi-pitch basic skills
learned on previous events and put them into
action on a real multi-pitch climb. If you do
not have basic multi-pitch skills this event is
not for you. The focus of the trip would be
leading and following on an actual climb to
gain some real experience and apply your skills
in a setting where you can be coached through
it to be ready for bigger climbs. This is also
a great way to start to learn route finding
skills on rock. This trip is perfect for people
who have learned multi-pitch techniques but
have limited or no experience leading a multi-
pitch climb. This requires a lower participant
to instructor ratio for the learning and
mentorship aspect of learning and for safety.
This is not a guided climb however a guide will
coach you to help you learn. This event also
presents opportunities for more experienced
Multi-pitch climbers to work on developing as a
climber and to work on next level trip
management skills. Coming
into the course you need to demonstrate skills
including building and tying into anchors,
bringing up a second, effective rope
management, and how to safely descend a route.
Cost: $208 for the one day
course. This event is a great deal compared to
other similar events.
Pre-requisites: Climbers signing up for this
course should be competent lead climbers on
rock up to 5.8, be able to safely belay both
lead and top rope, and be able to rappel even
though we might not rappel the route depending
on how busy it is. Climbers must know how to
build and clean an equalized anchor.
The Process to sign up is as follows:
Put your name on the waitlist.
Email a description of your climbing
experience to the trip coordinator, Luis
