    What is Multi-Pitch Climbing?

    Multi-pitch climbing takes place on taller cliffs where the length of a climb is longer than the rope, so the route must be broken down into multiple, shorter segments or “pitches. A route can have as many pitches as needed to reach the top, although in New Hampshire few are longer than 10 pitches (roughly 1000 ft).

    Is multi-pitch climbing the only thing we do?

    No! Although the focus of the camp will primarily be on multi-pitch climbing, it will not be the only thing that we do! We will also spend a day or two at single pitch locations like Echo Crag or Rumney Rocks. Hot days will include trips to hop in the river. Rainy days will be spent developing skills indoors at our indoor rock climbing gym. There will be evening activities at camp to relax and prepare for the next day of climbing.

    Whats the curriculum?

    Climbers will arive Sunday afternoon, and climb Monday through Friday before packing up to go home. Climbers will begin the week practicing skills related to traditionaly protected multi-pitch climbs. This includes cleaning gear, breaking down anchors, transitions, and various methods of descending. As the week progresses, climbers will use those skills on bigger objectives.
