Two distinct programs with three events each, one for the Summer and one for the other seasons, to enter the world of multi-pitch routes using the fast protections 'nuts' and 'friends', and execution of a belay.
A) Summer: Dolomites long weekend.
1st appointment: meeting, journey to the Dolomites, ascent to the refuge with lift, execution of a belay with fast protections, tests of use of fast protections, climbing first and trying them by falling on them with a back up rope. The evening will be dedicated to a theoretical lesson on the mountains dangers.
2nd & 3rd appointment: ascent of multi-pitch routes, basing on your skills, and review of the previous day.
B) Spring / autumn / winter: Valle del Sarca.
1st appointment: in the evening, learn the execution of a belay, how nuts and friends work, abseiling.
