The Arizona Mountaineering Club is pleased to offer our Outdoor Rock Climbing School. Our goal is to create a safe, fun experience that introduces you to the exciting and challenging world of outdoor climbing. Upon completion, you will be equipped with the basic skills necessary to join top-rope and multi-pitch climbs led by qualified outing leaders (as appropriate to your climbing ability). This is a comprehensive course in top-rope rock climbing. Topics include equipment selection (harness, shoes, etc.), rope management, common climbing knots and applicability, rope types and construction, carabiner types and proper usage, climbing calls, belaying with a tube type device and Muenter hitch, rappelling, self rescue and prusiking, escaping a belay, climbing ethics, and basic climbing techniques. Is the AMC Outdoor Climbing school for me? People from all walks of life and a wide variety of ages enjoy rock climbing. No prior experience required! Many that take the AMC course are outdoor enthusiasts who are looking to expand their ways of enjoying the great outdoors; others have been climbing in a gym for a while and want to learn to be “real rock” climbers or have learned to climb from friends and want to “fill in the knowledge gaps”; and still others are just looking for a challenge or to overcome their fear of heights. No matter what your reason, we’ll make it a fun and rewarding experience. The AMC Schools accept anyone age 14 or older in reasonable physical condition. You don’t have to be a super-fit athlete, just capable of hiking and generally getting around in the great outdoors. Bring a positive mental attitude and you’ll be good to go. Note: students ages 14-15 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. To enroll or find more information, go to http://arizonamountaineeringclub.net/schools/outdoor-rock-climbing-school/
