Can I waive out of Rock Seconding?

You can waive out if you can demonstrate mastery of all the materials covered in the class. Know that Rock Seconding is meant to be preparation for several classes taught by the Technical Climbing School. It is more than simply learning how to follow a leader. If you waive out and are found to be unsafe in any of the successive classes you will be asked to quit that class and go back to Basic Climbing and/or Intermediate Rock. For that reason, we recommend taking Rock Seconding.

What do I need to know to waive out? If you are blank or rusty on any of the following, you should take Rock Seconding.
