Advanced Rock Climbing Blue Mountains
The Blue Mountains, Australia
ADVANCED ROCK CLIMBING BLUE MOUNTAINS COURSE OVERVIEW
An advanced rock climbing course run from the Blue Mountains, Australia. Learn multi pitch rock climbing skills on beautiful Blue Mountains sandstone.
Once you have completed your beginners rock climbing day, this is the next step. Learn to belay and follow a lead climber up a multi pitch rock climb. The Blue Mountains have some fantastic and exposed climbs that require more than one pitch of climbing to reach the cliff top. This style of climbing is similar to how a mountain is climbed in alpine style. Therefore this climbing technique is also useful to learn to complete guided technical ascents in the greater ranges.
Weather and participant skill levels will determine what climbs are completed during the one day course.
Once you have the skills to belay and follow a lead climber safely you will be eligible to complete the multi pitch climb at Sublime Point 'Sweet Dreams' 180m, grade 17. Climbers must have the ability to climb this grade to complete the ascent.
