Take your climbing to the next level (literally) with our Multi-Pitch Climbing course! This course is for anyone with trad climbing experience (since most multi-pitch routes in Squamish are trad climbs) who is looking to develop their knowledge, skills and Multi-Pitch capabilities.

It’s no surprise that this is one of our most popular courses, what with the World’s Second Largest Granite Dome towering 700 meters above Squamish (that’s right, we’re talking about the Stawamus Chief). It doesn’t take much to feel inspired to get high.  In addition to your day in the field, all students will have access to our online course so you can study before you head out - or watch again to refresh your skills afterward.

You’ll also be able to join our top-up clinics which will be running throughout the season. All you have to do is book one of our scheduled sessions, and get yourself back out on the rock for a refresher of what you’ve already learned.

Our Trad Climbing course is highly recommended as a prerequisite to our Multi-Pitch Climbing course. And you can save 10% when this course is combined with Trad Climbing over the same weekend!

It was super fun and incredibly informative.

We did a two day, trad and then multi-pitch training. It was super fun and incredibly informative. Tucker was really friendly and knowledgeable. Really fun to climb with and learn from.
