lead climbing and rescue instruction in Leavenworth

Learning Lead Climbing Skills and Rock Rescue in Leavenworth

In June, Moun­tain Mad­ness Guide Jason Bro­man took two clients, Petey and Greg, to Leav­en­worth for a two day Inter­me­di­ate Rock Course fol­lowed by a day of instruc­tion in Rock Res­cue. On the course, our they learned the tech­niques of mul­ti-pitch climb­ing, place­ment of pro­tec­tion, lead climb­ing, and route find­ing on longer climbs. Under Jason’s watch, they built many anchors and placed a ton of gear. The weath­er allowed for three good days of crag­ging in Leav­en­worth, despite inter­mit­tent showers.
