Is it for you?
If you're already seconding 'gear routes', leading indoor or sport climbing routes and are comfortable climbing 5.7 then this would be the perfect program for you.
Two-days of intensive traditional rock climbing training with an optional "Plus Day" on an advanced multi-pitch climb. This is an ideal progression from Rock Transition or Rock Evolution.
Climbing on 'gear routes' where you construct your own anchors and place your own protection is far more challenging than 'clipping' bolts. You can't afford to make mistakes as the consequences are often unacceptable. If you're already following 'gear routes', leading indoors or on sport routes and comfortable climbing 5.7 then you're ready for 'Trad Rock Systems'.
The objective of this course is to work on natural (traditional) rock protection and belay systems and introduce 'trad' lead climbing tactics on a variety of rock types.
