Schedule:

Field Days June 12-13, all day starting early at Maxwell Falls



Completion of online learning is required before field day.



Intermediate Rock Climbing follows our Basic Climbing course. Intermediate Rock focuses on outdoor climbing skills, rappelling, and safety.  It may be taken as a stand-alone class, or as part of the Alpine Climbing School "Modular" track.  Click here to learn more about climbing classes at the CMC.



The prerequisite for this class is Basic Climbing, or Basic Climbing Equivalency.  Please do not sign up if you have not taken the pre-reqs.



Learning Outcomes:




  • Multiple methods of rappel

  • Rappel back-ups and safety

  • Intermediate climbing movement and technique

  • Lots of practice climbing & rappelling outside, on real rock!

  • Climbing knots: barrel knot, fisherman's knot, water knot, autoblock hitch, Munter hitch, figure 8 on a bight, double-overhand on a bight (aka BHK)

  • Review rope coiling: butterfly coil and backpackers' coil



Required Climbing Equipment:




  • climbing harness

  • mountaineering boots (If ACS Students) or rock climbing shoes

  • climbing helmet

  • belay device

  • locking carabiners

  • safety leash (e.g. 48" sewn nylon sling)

  • belay gloves (optional).  Gloves made especially for belaying are great, but an inexpensive pair of leather work gloves from the hardware store are fine too.

  • The 10 Essentials



CMC can provide most equipment but you are encouraged to bring your own. CMC does not provide mountaineering boots or belay gloves.



Class will be held at a local outdoor climbing area.  The approach hike will take approx 30 minutes. Please bring the footwear, clothing, food/water, appropriate for the conditions



Next steps



Go climbing!  Practice your new skills at climbing wall nights and trips to the local cliffs.  https://www.cmc.org/Calendar/Trips.aspx



Continue learning.  This class is a prerequisite for many other climbing classes at the CMC.  It's also a required class for the CMC's Alpine Climbing School "Modular Track"  Click here to learn more about climbing classes at the CMC.




Notes

Attendance/Completion Policy
Students must attend all lectures and field days to receive credit for completing the course. Students will not be allowed to continue beyond a missed lecture/field day. Students must also demonstrate mastery of the both the prerequisites and the skills taught in the immediate class. If such mastery cannot be demonstrated, the student will be asked to repeat the course. If a student cannot demonstrate mastery of the prerequisites the student will not be allowed to continue in the class. Note that classes sometimes show "Sessions"; Basic Climbing Session A, for example. Sessions are simply alternate dates of the same class. In other words, you may choose Session A or Session B, depending on which dates work best for you. You do not have to complete both Session A and Session B.

Cancellation Policy:
Classes must have minimum four students signed up and requisite number of instructors. If either number is too low class may be cancelled.

Refund Policy:
