Schedule - 2014

Attendance at all sessions is mandatory. Missing any one session will preclude you from attending further sessions. This is necessary, of course, because at each session you will be learning concepts that are essential for your safety. Each successive session builds on these concepts.

  • a morning of climbing at Rock'n & Jam'n in Thornton on July 26th from 8:00-1:00

  • Field Trip #2: August 9th or 10th, 'Mock' Lead climbing with a toprope backup at 'the Boulderado' formation in Boulder Canyon. Due to space restrictions, half the class will go on Saturday and half the class will go on Sunday. Please keep your calendar flexible.
  • Field Trip #3: Easy Multi-pitch day with 2 students and an instructor as observer. Many of these trips will go the weekend following Mock Lead. Dates and locations are flexible, as we have to match each pair of students with an instructor and also juggle the locations.
  • Field Trip #4: 4 or 5-pitch route with 2 students and an instructor as observer. Many of these trips will go the weekend following Easy Multi-pitch. Dates and locations are flexible, as we have to match each pair of students with an instructor and also juggle the locations.

The Field Trips are scheduled depending on weather and instructor availability. Please be as flexible as possible. Final climbs have taken place as late as October.
