Rock Climbing

Below is a sample of the type of curriculums that are available. Because it will be only you and/or your group with me, we can customize your days to best fit your needs.


Introduction to Climbing

This course is for the person who is new to climbing or someone who has climbed in a gym and wants to learn how to be a good second on multi-pitch traditional climbing. The bulk of our time on this course is spent climbing.
Maximum ratio 3:1


Guided Climbs

If you would like a day of climbing or need to train for something specific we can tailor a course. Whether it is training for an adventure race or a desire to climb a particular route on Cannon, Mount Washington, Cathedral or Whitehorse, training for a personal goal or a hike to a particular summit, let Chauvin Guides International help you learn and grow in the sport of climbing.


Leading

The goal of this course is to introduce you to the skills necessary to lead traditional climbs. It is designed for people who have led sport climbs or who have seconded multi-pitch climbs and feel ready to lead. We will discuss anchoring and protection placement, systems for belaying leaders and seconds, racking, and choosing the right length sling. If you are ready after the initial clinics you will be able to lead a pitch.

Self Rescue

Are you often nagged by questions such as “what happens if ….” Or do you wonder how you would get off of a route with even a minor injury? Do these questions affect your climbing when doing longer routes? Often having the knowledge to solve problems can keep you from getting into trouble in the first place. Although self rescue can be complex, we bring you through a progression that builds upon itself to help you solve the problem at hand. Our teaching techniques allow you to retain the information so it will be useable if you ever need it.


Setting Up Top Ropes

This course is for gym climbers or for people who have climbed with either a friend or guide and want to become self-sufficient in setting up their own top ropes. You will learn a systematic approach that will allow you to adapt to new areas using various types of anchors. This efficient system will let you spend more time climbing and less time setting up. We’ll start with nut placement, then move to anchoring. We will also cover belays from both the top and bottom of the cliff.
