The Charlie Mike Solutions Basic Mountaineering Course is a great introduction to mountaineering. This is not a rock climbing course. While rock climbing can be a part of mountaineering, the general idea behind the course is to allow you to move through mountainous conditions. The course is conducted at the Charlie Mike Solutions Training Facility in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It will cover many subjects over the course of three days including: Introduction to mountaineering, knots, rope handling and care, using manufactured and field expedient harnesses, rappelling, emplace a fixed line, negotiate a fixed line, recover a fixed line, construct and negotiate a rope bridge water crossing (Tyrolian traverse), mountain navigation, mountain weather considerations, conduct a belay, introduction to artificial protection and more.
The course will introduce new mountaineers to the tasks, as well as reinforce the tasks for more experienced mountaineers. Additionally, the course is just great fun! This course can also be a great team building experience.
