Intro Rock Climbing Course

Last weekend 5 people came out for the Intro to Rock Climbing course and we had a fun 2 days of climbing.

On the 1st day we went to Back of the Lake, at Lake Louise, and had a big day on the rocks. After learning to put on the gear, belay, tie-in, and other important skills, everyone climbed about 10 or 12 times on a number of different routes.

On Sunday we started out at Grassi Lakes, by Canmore, and everyone quickly cranked out a half dozen climbs. Then, since everyone was progressing so quickly, I taught the basics of lead climbing and everyone led 2 sport routes at the Golf Course wall. In the afternoon in became quite busy so we moved to a different crag for a few more climbs.

A fun time was had by all and I think everyone on the course is now hooked on rock climbing!
