Now that we know how to move vertically, we are going to learn to climb in sections.
According to the principles of sport climbing, if we want to climb a 300-meter wall, we will need a 300-meter rope, at least, right? The answer is negative, what we will do is split the climb. That is why this type of climbing is called multi-pitch climbing.
This course is designed so that sport climbers who want to make the leap to big bolted walls, do so safely and efficiently.
