Learning Lead Climbing Skills and Rock Rescue in Leavenworth

In June, Mountain Madness Guide Jason Broman took two clients, Petey and Greg, to Leavenworth for a two day Intermediate Rock Course followed by a day of instruction in Rock Rescue. On the course, our they learned the techniques of multi-pitch climbing, placement of  protection, lead climbing, and route finding on longer climbs. Under Jason's watch, they built many anchors and placed a ton of gear. The weather allowed for three good days of cragging in Leavenworth, despite intermittent showers.

Check out some great pictures of their anchor construction, crack climbing techniques and rappelling techniques.
