All about the Corso di introduzione alle vie lunghe.

The Introduction to Long Routes Course consists of three outdoor outings, at crags and on multi-pitch routes in Tuscany. The aim of the course is to make students more and more independent in sport climbing on single pitch routes and to introduce them to climbing on multi-pitch routes.
The first outing will take place at the crag and will focus on progression as lead climber, belaying manoeuvres and belaying with various types of brakes. We will then apply the illustrated progression techniques on specially selected long routes.
The course will be held exclusively by Alpine Guides, professionals qualified to teach and lead people in the mountains, on all Alpine terrains.
The course is open to those who already have some experience in sport climbing.

The minimum number of participants to start the activity is 4 persons.
