Citizen Guide II

This curriculum covers the tools and techniques required when you climb as a team of 3. This course builds on CG I but introduces an additional person. Simul-belaying is not covered. Click here for the Equipment List.

Pre-Requisites
Successful completion of CG I or the equivalent is strongly suggested. Before beginning the Citizen Guide program you need to be a solid 5.8 trad leader and have lead 50 multi-pitch climbs. “Solid” means you can get out of bed any day of the week and lead 5.8 no problem. Additionally, you must be very familiar with belaying the leader & the second, rappelling, protection placement, protection assessment, and anchor construction.
