Course Content: The intent of this course is to give participants an introduction to the intricacies of leading and following aid pitches. The curriculum would include: clean-aid placements, testing pieces, efficiency, rope ascension and lower outs. All systems will be practiced as mock-leads or with back-up ropes.

This is not a beginner course so some climbing experience is necessary. Participants should have some of their own rack and should have taken a trad rock course.
Required Items to Bring:
Sean will supply full list to those accepted.

Recommended Items to Bring:
Warm clothes (expect to stand around and listen/learn) and then participate, sun screen and camera

Notes:
Applicants will be reviewed as this is not a beginner course. When you sign-up please send the Co-ordinators an email stating if you have had the TRAD course and your climbing experience. Once accepted you will need to deliver the $162.50 (this includes tax) ** Sean is running this course with only two participants to test and refine the covid19 requirements. No additional registrations will be taken.

Be sure to send a payment confirmation email to the trip coordinators.
