You've started climbing outdoors but still need to learn the techniques for multi-pitch climbing? Or maybe you've done some multi-pitch climbing but would love a refresher to gain confidence before going with your friends? Then this event is for you!
Unlike lead climbing, which involves a single climber ascending one route, multi-pitch climbing involves several climbers traversing multiple routes on the way to their destination. It offers climbers the ability to cover longer distances and traverse more routes.
You will meet your guide at Susten Passhöhe at 09:45 on Saturday. We will give you a lift to the spot of the day, check all the equipment and start climbing. In the morning, we will do some lead climbing to get back into it, and in the afternoon we will start learning the technique and safety rules of multi-pitch climbing. After a long day outside, we will head to our hotel where we will have a well deserved dinner and spend the night.
After an early breakfast on Sunday, we will go back to the crag and get ready for a full day of multi-pitch climbing! We will put the skills learned the day before into practice and discover how thrilling and rewarding this sport is.
To join this event, you need to be able to lead climb outdoors. The climbing level itself does not play a significant role as this weekend is more about climbing technique and safety. The routes will not be technically difficult (grade 4 or 5).
How to get there =====
If you are traveling from Zurich by public transport, we recommend you to take the following:
- Saturday: Zurich HB 07:05 - 09:46 Susten Passhöhe (via Arth-Goldau and Göschenen) - Sunday: Göschenen 18:09 - 19:55 Zurich HB - depending on what time we finish
It is much easier to leave from Göschenen on Sunday rather than Susten Passhöhe so we will find ways to drive everyone back to Göschenen trainstation.
