Boston Rock Climbing Program

Trip dates: Wednesday, March 7, 2018 12:00 AM to Sunday, May 6, 2018 12:00 AM

Rock climbing provides the exhilaration of conquering a crag, but also the puzzle of figuring out a sequence of moves to climb a difficult section. You can experience the rewards and challenges of rock climbing by taking the Boston Mountaineering Committee's Rock Climbing Program! This program covers the basic skills for outdoor rock climbing. The emphasis of the course is learning to safely follow a leader on multipitch trad climbs. We cover: toprope anchor building, belaying, ascending, rappelling, and more. No prior experience is necessary. You will learn from our experienced volunteer instructors and meet other aspiring and enthusiastic rock climbers! The program will have two indoor sessions: an optional information session on March 7 (tentative) from 7-8pm, and a required Knots night on March 28 (tentative) from 7-9pm. The program weekends are held in the Blue Hills reservation. The first program weekend is April 7 and 8 (both days required); you may attend either day of the remaining program weekends: April 14/15, April 21/22, and May 5/6. If you do not have a climbing harness or helmet (required), they may be borrowed at no cost (with a deposit). Registration this year will be by application, due by the Sunday after the optional information session. For more information, see http://amcbostonclimbers.com/rock-program
