 *PLEASE NOTE: THIS FT IS FOR STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE ALPINE ROCK COURSE ONLY*

This course teaches advanced alpine rock skills and techniques to climbers who wish to pursue moderate to hard alpine rock objectives. Students learn and apply new skills on artificial walls, then transition to rock environments. Rock objectives include areas in Leavenworth, Squamish, and Washington Pass. The students then organize and lead appropriate alpine rock objectives, such as routes on Slesse, Dragontail, and Stuart.  Students have two full seasons to complete alpine rock climbs and finish the course. The course is for members who are comfortable leading 5.7 or higher trad multipitch climbs and have alpine climbing experience.
