Multi Pitch Climbing

July 2007

Multi Pitch is multiple times the length of a rope length to the top of the crag or mountain that be from 2  or more than  11.

This can be a day tour or a multiple days tour.

Since we met we did quite some multi pitching routes on our journeys. Some were bolted and somethimes unbolted Traditional routes. It is always an adventure as you have to prepare yourself better than for example with sport climbing.

You have to check the weather conditions, the grade of the route, escape possibilities when required, abseil possibilities, the gear you need, topo at hand, clothes to wear warm or cold, water supply and food. And what if you don't reach the top in time how to sleep. Main thing is to make a note to somebody that you are doing a long route in case you need help.
