Rock Climbing

Total Rock

Total Rock combines Rock 1,2,3 & 4 and is the absolute package to begin top-roping, sport lead and placement protection lead climbing.

Total Rock enables you to become a complete rock climber in only four days. Master the skills to safely approach a cliff edge in order to build, rappel, belay, communicate and climb from your own simple and complex top-rope anchor systems. Learn about clipping bolts, sport lead anchors and threads, placement protection products, single and multi-pitch placement protection anchors, single and multi-pitch lead strategies, lead and top-down belays, rock climbing movement skills, multi-pitch retreat methods while using advanced rappel systems, basic rescue techniques and more. Clients appreciate the extra days of training in order for them to review and practice the more complex systems and gain the confidence required to safely begin top roping, sport and placement protection lead climbing outdoors on their own. Once you have gained more experience, our Multi-Pitch Lead or Rock Rescue courses are the next logical steps in training.
