So that students new to climbing and without prior belay experience can spend maximum time at station 1; Station 3 (Rope Ascending) will be done at Monday Night Skills for these students.

Students with gym climbing, and belay experience skip station 1, and do station 2. Everyone does Station 2.

Station 3 will be set up for students who breeze through station 2. Station 3 (Rope Ascending) will be available on Monday Nights through about May. For this course rope ascending is primarily a glacier travel self rescue skill. No hurry to learn this right away at the start of the course.
