About the Course
How do you climb something that is taller than your rope is long? Our 2-day Intro To Multi-Pitch Course is perfect for the aspiring climber who wants to start tackling some larger rock climbing objectives. Prerequisites for this course are our Anchor Building Course and our Intro To Trad Climbing Course - Parts 1 and 2 (or equivalent knowledge).
During this course we will climb multi-pitch routes! We will also practice skills such as anchor building, rappelling, top-managed belaying, self tethering, station management, rope management, and gear racking. Climbers wishing to take this course are strongly encouraged to pair this course with our Self Rescue Course, so that they have the knowledge of how to safely retreat from a large rock face if things aren't going as planned.
Rates for Instructional Courses
In efforts to make our instructional courses more accessible and affordable for aspiring outdoor climbers, we have a special discounted instructional rate of $330 for up to 3 participants. For groups of more than 3 climbers it is an additional $110/climber. Climbers are encouraged to bring their own gear to practice with, however, Stone Adventures will provide any needed rock climbing equipment at no extra cost. All courses are 6 hours long, taught by a full time professional rock climbing guide and the curriculum is up-to-date with the standards of the Professional Climbing Guide Institute (PCGI) and American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA). Last but not least, the courses are held outside in beautiful Joshua Tree National Park!
