LEADER PERMISSION REQUIRED.  Please email with prior trad climbing history, as well as your past/current intermediate mentor.

So how confident are you with your trad pro? interested in really knowing if your gear placement can take a fall...and why you really want to avoid that in the alpine?

We'll go to exit 32 and test trad placements with a backup top-rope. if you're not comfortable taking a fall, i'll fall on your gear for you :-).

Attendees are required to have Rock 2 credit and be comfortable leading 5.7.  Belaying and taking leader falls at least in the gym beforehand helpful but not required.
