Multipitch performance coaching

Unique way how to get week of coaching and possibilitiy to exchange experiences from Edu Marin, guy who has send the harderst multipich route in China and UIAGM guide Pablo who has opened big wall routes in Himalayas. With Rockbusters you climb BETTER, HARDER & MORE!

Had your eyes on some difficult, long rock climbs, but you haven’t had the chance to pull it off yet? Leave it to the experts to get you on the routes of your dreams. In this course led by UIAGM guide Pablo Ruiz Seco, and pro-climber Edu Marin, you will learn everything you need to know to tackle hard multipitch climbs. 

 

Seco was a past member of the Spanish Youth Alpine Team and has opened routes in the Himalayas. Edu has redpointed the world’s hardest multipitch, Walhala 9a+ in China. This team of experts will show you the best practices for safely approaching hard multipitch climbs. 

 

Whether you are an experienced multipitch climber looking for a challenge or if you are a confident single pitch sport climber searching for a new experience, this camp has what you need. You will leave this camp with a deep understanding of multipitch safety and learn to execute your multipitch ascents with technical excellence and efficiency. 

 

In addition to equipment handling, you will also gain an understanding of risk management. Many multipitch routes are found in alpine environments. To safely execute multipitch climbs, it is important to evaluate the risks associated with high altitude, weather, mountain obstacles, and other potential hazards. It is important to understand how to plan your adventures and how to escape if the need arrives. 

 

When attempting a difficult multipitch climb, conditions must be perfect. In this course we will ensure your competence as a multipitch climber. You will learn how to plan and prepare - both technically and mentally - for your multipitch climbing endeavors. This course includes:

 

  • maximum quality and quantity of climbing
  • individual approach to your needs and level
  • one-on-one coaching
  • video analysis

 

While some guides may only help you to get up the routes, in this course, we make sure you become a competent multipitch climber for all your adventures to come. Over the course of a week, you will learn about rope management, become literate in multipitch safety, and of course the best way to learn things is to do them as much as possible so you spend a lot of time climbing the variety of beautiful routes in Riglos.

 

Here is what we planned for you.
