Pre-requisite: Lead Climbing Class or equivalent.

Improve your multipitch efficiency with better rope management.  Most teams waste time at the belay stations on the climb and on the descent.

Practice swapping leads vs block leading and when to use each technique.  Learn how to climb as a team of 3 with two ropes.  Learn how to manage a hanging belay station when there is no stance for your feet.

A focus on risk assessment will help you assess the hazards of high-off-the-deck climbing.  Many teams overestimate their ability.  Learn how to assess whether a climb is within your teams capability.

Multipitch rappelling presents unique challenges, and when 2 ropes are needed things can go wrong easily.  Learn how to avoid rope snags so your rope always comes down when you retrieve it.

Introduction to rescue: fixed rope ascension.  Learn how to tie friction hitches with cords or slings so you can ascend the rope.
