Description

Technical Rock Climbing Safety

Please join us to learn technical rock climbing safety skills. Whether you are learning to set up top ropes or you are a skilled multi-pitch trad climber, there will be something for everyone to learn. We will cover many topics, from why we make potentially fatal mistakes on our local sport routes to risk management as it relates to climbing. Please come for a fun evening where you will learn skills and techniques that will help keep you and your friends safe out on the rock.

Alpine member Curt Honcharik is a local climber who enjoys warm days at North Table and the freezing summits of 14ers alike. He has taught climbing safety courses for fellow SAR members and sits on the Technical Standards Committee for Alpine.



Skills for the Hills is Alpine Rescue Team's public wilderness and backcountry education program. Our classes are free, however we appreciate donations at the door. We never charge you, your family or the local authorities for search and rescue.
