Megafest – Multi-pitch Climbing Skills – 11 Dec 2021

Multi-pitch climbing opens up a new world of adventure, allowing you to climb beyond the limits of your rope length. This requires additional rope skills, problem solving and planning in order to be undertaken safely. Learn these skills and climb all the way to the top.

James and Cedric will be running a Multi-pitch Climbing Skills trip at Reservoir Dogs with a focus on the core skills needed for multi-pitch sport climbing. The area offers a series of two pitch multi-pitch climbs ranging from grade 15 to 22.
