Vertical Section – Rebelay

Event Leader: Gary Bush

The Vertical Rebelay Course provides demonstrations, instructions, and practice for climbing with the European style of rope rigging using rebelays. Instructors will be available throughout the day to assist students in learning and practicing the techniques necessary to negotiate rebelays safely and effectively. While the course is open, students may come by anytime to observe others, demonstrate their own
techniques, or to just practice.

Students should bring their own climbing gear. Homemade gear is subject to approval by the instructors. All gear will be evaluated by the instructors for safety, serviceability, setup, and “tuned” if need be for optimal performance while crossing rebelays. Loaner cowstails will be provided as needed. Runs concurrent with the Vertical Climbing Contests.

ARRIVAL: Participants may join us at any time during the day, and we appreciate Support and Coaches! You need time to allow time to sign in, gear up, wait for turn, climb, learn and enjoy! But Climbers should arrive well before about 3:00 PM to allow time to rig, maneuver, learn and enjoy! All persons must have signed the NSS Convention Liability Releases. Minors must have written parental permission.
