Rock Climbing 301 Course

Intermediate Level Course This course is for individuals with some climbing background that now wish to get out by themselves and learn to lead climb! This course will focus on effective techniques for leading ‘traditional’ (placing gear) and ‘sport’ (bolted) climbs in a single pitch setting confidently and efficiently. The course will look at climbing efficiently, gear placements and anchor building with lots of climbing and one on one coaching throughout from your Instructor. We start with an in-depth review of gear placements and climbing equipment, then move on to ‘mock leading’, (leading with a top rope) with the instructor alongside to coach. By the end of this intensive course you will have lead traditional climbs while the instructor ascends alongside looking at each placement you make. This course is the perfect next step for the top rope climber that wants to start leading sport and trad climbs by themselves!  Topics Covered: Lead climbing strategies and techniques for climbing confidently Equipment selection, racking and considerations Ropework; clean, efficient systems Detailed look at gear placements including: SLCD's (cams) Stoppers, Tricams, "Big Bros" and Hexentrics Advanced anchors using natural (trees/boulders/threads) and artificial (gear/bolts) components and single pitch anchor creation and considerations Evaluating fixed gear; bolts, pitons, sling material and stoppers Review of understanding guidebooks, reading topos and choosing appropriate climbs Common myths and truths about climbing equipment Course Prerequisites: Applicants must have taken our Foundation Level courses or can top rope 5.6 climbs, rappel and have experience placing artificial gear and building anchors.

Complete Self Rescue for Climbers, NC

Intermediate Level Course The FMG Complete Self Rescue for Climbers course looks at skills every climber that ties into a rope should know; basic competency in risk management, problem avoidance and self rescue skills. This course emphasizes reducing the risks in the first place, teaching new, clever systems and techniques to reduce the chance of ever having to use the rescue skills you will learn on the course. We have distilled the information taught on previous courses, and looked in to more realistic situations for self rescue. We will teach you the most efficient systems and won't flood you with over complicated useless systems. All these skills are useful in everyday climbing and it’s amazing how much speed and efficiency is gained from having these skills “dialed”. Self rescue is a topic that all climbers should be skilled in for themselves and the people they climb with. "Let's face it, unless you take a course no one ever practices rescue skills, we just go climbing, that's why I took the self rescue program with Fox Mountain Guides".-Tom Gallo Topics Covered: Day One Planning, preparation, equipment and communication Problem avoidance; reducing the risks in the first place Basic rescue knots, hitches and tie offs Load transfers; the building blocks for all rope rescue techniques Raising systems 101, a detailed look at the basic physics behind raising systems, mechanical advantage raises and assisted raises (2:1, 3:1 and 3:1 assisted) Rescuing and assisting the second; raises, lowers and counterbalanced lowers Ascending a fixed and counterbalanced rope Correct techniques for using Plaquette Devices in climbing and self rescue applications (ATC Guide/Reverso)  Day Two Rescuing the injured leader in the single and multipitch environment Weighted transitions (rappelling multiple pitches with an unconscious climber) Counterbalanced and tandem rappels Weighted transitions (rappelling multiple pitches with an unconscious climber) Effective knot passes on rappels and lowers Raising systems 201, creating simple 5:1 and 6:1 raising systems using minimal equipment Course Prerequisites: Applicants must have taken one of our Foundation Level courses or: Can top rope 5.6 climbs comfortably Have experience rappelling Can tie basic knots such as Figure Eight, Clove Hitch, Münter Hitch, and various Friction Hitches Have experience placing artificial gear and building anchors for top roping More experienced climbers can take just day two of the program for ongoing education if they can effectively perform all of the course pre-requisites above and can perform the following: Lock off an aperture type belay device Complete a basic load transfer Ascend a fixed line without the use of mechanical devices Create a basic 3:1 raise using an assisted braking device (GriGri/Cinch) or Plaquette Device (ATC Guide/Reverso) Release a loaded Plaquette Device (ATC Guide/Reverso)  To go to the Complete Self Rescue for Climbers Course Information Page Click Here Click Here to Book Course
