9am-when we finish, which could be anywhere 1-3pm depending on group size and leader availability. Students will update parents on pickup time. 

Come prepared for the weather, we will run the workshop rain or shine. 

We will learn about belaying a follower, anchor building, transitions, and generally about climbing as a follower on a multi-pitch climb.

At least one of the multi-pitch workshops and understanding of these skills is required for multi-pitch climbs in Leavenworth and on the summer trip and any alpine rock climbs.
