Multi-pitch compact course: in no time to become an alpine climber
From the correct use of the half ropes and the belay devices to reading topos to the rappelling technique today there is so much on the program! Furthermore, we will climb a short multi-pitch route to apply the newly learned content.
Our multi-pitch compact courses are as unique as you are: that’s why we plan them carefully and adventurously, so that we will have an unforgettable adventure full of breathtaking views, movement and fun on the rock.
Some cantons where we offer our multi-pitch courses are:
Ticino, Uri, Bern, Schwyz and many more.
If you prefer to deepen your basic knowledge and go multi-pitch climbing without worries, we also offer a two-day “Immersion” basic course, which will teach you much more basic knowledge than the somewhat “compressed” one-day version offered here.

We get an introduction/repetition of the belaying, knot tying and climbing techniques and combine this with lots of climbing, sun, fun!
Reading a topo, rappelling, lead climbing, energy-saving climbing … there are quite a lot of topics that we will cover today. Nevertheless, at participants request, we can address specific topics, so that at the end of the day everyone will be able to go climbing independently simple multi-pitch routes.
