Intro to Trad Climbing
Welcome to the wonderful world of traditional climbing! This is the art of placing your own gear for protection to clip your rope into on climbs. Our trad climbing course will include gear overview, setting gear, anchors, and rope management. This class will consist of one quarter day for Ground School in Seattle and the next full day will be held outside at a local Seattle area crag (most likely Exit 38 or 32 off I-90). Round out your trad experience with must needed knowledge of crack climbing with our Cracknique course.
