Advanced Outdoor Rock Climbing: for participants entering grades 9th-12th and/or recent Highschool graduates

Up your outdoor rock-climbing game and gain the skills to become more independent within this sport! You’ll learn about and practice building anchors, understand advanced rope skills, hone your skills both on rope and bouldering outside, learn mental strategy, and gear placement and removal. Students who master this course progression will have the opportunity to lead outdoor sport climbs and follow a multi-pitch traditional rock-climbing route under the mentorship of YEP’s senior AMGA certified climbing staff. We’ll begin our week reviewing essential climbing skills and beginning to practice the art of lead belaying. Moving into the rest of the week, we’ll gain more practice on multi-pitch terrain, build confidence and skill in a lead climbing progression, and have the opportunity to follow 3-4 pitch traditional climbs. Previous climbing experience is required. (Day camp)

Cost: $475 CMC members/ $550 non-members. Learn about all the benefits of becoming a CMC member.
