September 23rd - 24th           Saturday - Sunday      Climbing Skills, Lead
Climbing Practice - Alabama Hills


Many of us learn basic climbing skills and then forget them because they are
not used. Sadly, an emergency situation is a poor time for trying to recall
these basic skills. We will review and practice some of the most basic
skills that a climber requires to be safe on the rock; skills like tying off
a rappel device, ascending a rope, passing a knot, and others.  


We will also review and practice important aspects of leading. I am aiming
this practice to anyone from a raw novice to a seasoned veteran who just
wants a little refresher in the basics.  

We will spend the first part of each day discussing techniques and issues
and the bulk of the day practicing skills and taking turns leading moderate
climbs. Our focus will be on safety, developing good habits, and how to
progress to harder leads.


The Alabama Hills provide a good environment for this sort of practice as
the routes are very well protected and offer a variety of climbing options
from sport to trad. If you would just like to climb and not participate in
the skills refresher, that's fine too. We can all still get together and
tell climbing lies around the campfire at night.


This trip is open to anyone regardless of skill or experience. Standard
personal gear, including harness and helmet are required.
