Climb for free with a guide for a day with Alpine Endeavors on September 4!

Alpine Endeavors is  looking for six people on September 4, 2009, to participate in day of rock climbing in the Gunks, free of charge* for day two of the final assessment days.

The day will consist of beginner to low-intermediate climbing with a guide candidate on routes from 5.2 to 5.7 under the supervision of an AMGA Certified Rock Instructor and Rock Guide.

The purpose of the day is to evaluate AMGA SPI guide candidates during their final assessment of the AMGA Single Pitch Instructors Certification. All guide candidates up to this point have successfully completed an AMGA Single Pitch training Course (three days of training) and have successfully completed a one day assessment of their technical and rescue skills.

The day is to provide each candidate a realistic opportunity to teach basic climbing skills – knots, belaying, and climbing techniques to beginners as well as to asses their ability to clearly communicate the skills, manage the group, and facilitate the days progress to a group of actual beginner climbers.

*day passes are not included. They are required and are the responsibility of each participant.

Interested parties, please email info@alpineendeavors.com to register.
