When we jump from bolted routes to clean walls, the game changes. It is like going from sailing along the coast with our sailboat to going out to sea. That is why we must acquire new knowledge to approach this new activity safely.
It is important that we have gone through the climbing of several pitches equipped so that we already know the concepts of rope team, station, progression by pitches…
Likewise, there are people who come to classic climbing through mountain baggage: coming from climbing ridges, moving very well through mountain terrain, a lot of experience in rappelling… This would be the other way to become a traditional climber
Whether you come one way or the other, the final objective of the training is for you to acquire the maximum degree of autonomy possible and that is why we approach all the contents in a didactic, useful and over all practical way.
