ADVANCED CLIMBING TECHNIQUES
Students are introduced to advanced climbing systems and techniques used in technical tree climbing to expand their ability to explore the canopy more thoroughly, reduce fatigue and improve efficiency.
Advanced climbing systems require additional specialized equipment and therefore more complex by their nature. This class is structured with a low student to instructor ratio to allow for personalized instruction during class time.
Instruction includes proper use and care of the equipment and covers the skills necessary to enter a tree, maneuver around the canopy, and return to the ground through use of advanced techniques and equipment used in the Moving Rope System/Doubled Rope Technique (MRS/DdRT) and introduces a variety of Stationary Rope System/Single Rope Technique (SRS/SRT) systems.
Due to the complexity involved with advanced techniques and systems, students must be proficient in basic MRS/DdRT climbing.
Those wishing to get into SRS/SRT climbing but not having previous tree climbing experience/training should contact me for discussion on the potential for scheduling private training.
Price: $525.00 per person. (Group and Multi-student discounts)
