Friction climbing for Basic Students. Icicle Canyon, Leavenworth. Limit 8. Intended primarily for students in this year’s Basic Climbing Course, but open to basic graduates and equivalents and anyone (even non-members) with some rock experience. Friction is the technique used to climb slabs where there are no obvious hand or foot holds. Strength means nothing, hardware is superfluous; it’s all about balance and movement. You will learn to dance on rock. All climbing will be safely top-roped. Bring standard rock gear including harness, helmet, mountain boots, slings and carabiners.
