One Day Advanced Skills

Based on the techniques found in Falcon Guides New Book The Mountain Guide Manual with author Marc Chauvin

Saturday June 2, 2018


Sunday June 3, 2018

Join Marc for a 1 day clinic on new and advanced rope systems for climbers. This clinic focuses on efficient rope managing skills.  Are you finding that your rope skills are slowing you down? Are problems like switching leaders in a party of three causing tangles and taking far too long? Are transitions to rappelling in parties of three causing confusion and seem too tedious? Marc has taught guides through the AMGA program how to deal with these situations and has adapted guiding techniques to help climbers be more efficient.

These skills also will help you be more efficient and do a better job of risk management if you climb with less skilled folks. If you lead club trips or climb with your family and you’re the go to leader of the party these techniques will aid you in your responsibility and help you protect yourself better as well. This is a great clinic to take before or after learning self rescue and will give you insight on how well trained guides are able to move their parties so well.  

The class is $75.00, Inclusive of guide’s gratuity
