Has anyone attended this course? I'm going in the near future, and my climbing experience is lacking.

Just practice your knots and you'll do fine. Enjoy the stream crossing

Stream Crossing–– Don't worry, it will revert to normal size before the 96 in Reno.

Knots–– Learn that shit. Get one of the Red Hats to teach you blindfolded.

Climbs and Pitches–– Just remember, Arms for balance and grip, Legs and feet for Climbing.


+ Note: "It's good you came in Summer. In Winter, it can get very depressing."

That wasn't a stream. That was a river of pain.

Bridgeport sucks.

Me too. I did Bridgeport when I was at CLNC with 2nd CEBn.

FWIW, I did Bridgeport and two trips to Norway. Bridgeport was much, much, much colder.

OP - get your legs in shape, and start learning the knots. You can go in knowing next to nothing about knots, but it sucks playing catchup.
