Alpine rock climbing requires mountain sense and a slew of techniques that are unknown to most traditional climbers in order to be successful. In the alpine, we will often find hundreds or thousands of feet of 4th and 5th class climbing, serious weather that may demand rapid retreat or mandatory ascent, loose rock, snow, ice, route finding, etc. Knowing when to go, what to expect, how and where retreat is possible, etc. are all among the knowledge base topics we will introduce to participants.
