Rope Handling Clinic
This course is a must for all beginner rock climbers! During KAF’s Rope Handling Clinic you will be taught equipment fundamentals by Seattle’s most experienced instructors.
If you want to climb with confidence, developing proper rope handling skills and learning proper uses of equipment is imperative to your rock climbing training. Climbing gear is expensive! We know! You will learn exactly what you need to purchase after this course, and not spend any money on unneeded equipment. With one wise purchase, this course will pay for itself!
During this eight-hour rock climbing lesson, you will develop a strong foundation of knowledge to continue building upon in all future climbing courses.
You will learn about knots, hitches, equipment selection, ropes, and hardware. You will also practice coiling ropes and learn different ways to manage your climbing gear. In addition, anchoring will be discussed and practiced, along with belaying using different devices and rope ascension.
After a fun day of handling the necessities of climbing equipment, you will walk away with confidence, knowing when to choose a knot, how to apply it, and how to use equipment for various applications.
Take the time now to develop these skills today, and you will be a strong climber tomorrow.
