How do I use the fast protections? Where do I put them? How to create a belay?
Two distinct programs of 3 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.
1^ appointment: meeting, journey to the Dolomites, ascent to the refuge with lift, introduction to TRAD climbing, presentation of the materials, study of their use, execution of a belay, abseiling, progression in climbing as leading climber while testing the protections just put in with intentional fall, and a back up rope.
The evening will be dedicated to a theoretical lesson on the mountains dangers.
2^ & 3^ appointment: ascent of multi-pitch routes as second climber, follow your guide explaining the correct positioning of the protections, on long routes according to your abilities varying between 180m and 250m length.
B) Spring / Autumn / Winter: Valle del Sarca.
1^ appointment: in the evening, introduction to TRAD climbing, presentation of the materials, study of their use, execution of a belay, abseiling.
2^ appointment: a day of practical testing of the fast protections put on by yourself, and on which you will do fall tests with a back-up rope; learn how to make a belay with fast protections.
3^ appointment: a traditional multi-pitch route on the limestone of the Sarca Valley, following your mountain guide as a second climbing partner on routes of 200-300m.
Required grade: 5b / c, 6a / b as a leading climber.
