01:IINTRODUCTIONRock .climbing is-by no means a new sport.Enjoytng a heritagethat antedates mountaineering, rdck climbing was regarded as a healthysport by the Romans. / EmperorHadrian, for example, climbed up thees,ca-rpments of Mount/Etna in 104 A.D.In the 14th century, Petrarchoften'climbed in Provence,,The first climbing school was established at a monastery in France'sDordogne Valleysin 1426.In additidn, King Charles VIII of France, in1496, established a climbing school and appointed Jean.de Beaupre' as theclimiking instructor.In gngland, John Atkinson, in l82.5 devised 'a method,of rock.climbing to remit lost,sheep. These latter two men mere des.tined to become the "fathers of rock climbing.",Even though climbing equipment and techniques of the mid-1800'scan surely be questioned, this period is referred to.as the "golden heof climbing" with,manY European tourists seeking:to reach the summits'near'Zermatt.The ropei were shorter and made-of ioterior material sixthas hemp, flax and cotton. The techniques of."looping the rope" aroundboulders to anchor climbs and "btidy arrests" to prevent a partner's fallcertainly-contributed to the many multiple tragedies.In the United States, Seattle has ledthe wty in rock climbing,with tpe first climbing'wall constructed in 1941 at the William G. LongCamp.Since 1950, the French hove included rack climbing in,thOr curriculum on a limited basis, and a decade later the English began incorporating the sport i5to many of their elementary aad secondary schocils.'During the past few years there 4isbeen a vast amount of interestin ecology, precipitating the environmental movement and an exodus ofadventurous people to,the outddors to discover and investigate more fullyand personally nature's wonders. There hat been an attempt to affectivelyfeel this phenomenasand to cognitively understand it and man's 'interrelations.One of thellWoities that has exploded with its number of participants is the subject of this-text--rock'climbing. 'No longer is-thisinvigorating activity limited to a few mountaineers. All age groups andsexes can how part*cipate, depending 'upon their,ability And training.With prctper instructions most individuals can reach the emotional fulfillment and "environmental discovery" offered by rock climbing. Thegoal laf this. text is.to provide the instrucpr with a guide so thatihemight better be able to teach these concepts safely and efficientlY.Some public., as well as private, institutions have ncludedirock'climbing into their elementary, junior,high school, and/or secondarycurriculums.Several colleges and universities, as well, lave providedclimbing instructton.Several outdoor adventure organizations, suCh asOutward Bound, National Outdoor Leadership School, aS wall as otherspontaneous climbing schools teach indepth coUrses in rock climbing.INTROOCTiON4e.A

.There has been, hbwever, littYe communication among these groups and eachis biased-toward its own Method of instruction, confusing neophyteinstructors at publit school levels. However it should be emphasizedthat many techniques have been developed by these organiiations which-; Are safe and suciessful,rthe.two most important.criteria for, inclusionof any innovation in cliMbing.- This text will 'attempt to describeseveral methods with their advantages.and disadvantages in an attempt'to provide the instructor Agith an oblectiVe choice. Emphasis wfllhowever,-upon simplicity 'and safety.(o'ft.The intentbof this text is to provide material' from.which theinstructor could teach basic climbing concepts and safety skills thatwould enable him to conduct safe and,enjoyable rock,climbing'classes inschoolatmospherel Ihis.text is designed for the instructor with lim-'ited experience Who wts4es to teach rock climbing classes. Mountains arenot necessary to rock climb, although their presente should be capitalizedupon,,and any outcropping of hard rock can be utilized.AThis guide is not designed' to "book-teach" mountaineering from "Ato Z.". Many texts attempteto do this dnd,many oelhave learned viathenotarenot151bok-tr al-error" method, Which is-dangerousbet. This isto imply that the many fine texts as.listed within the bibliographynot useful.,they are all excellent resource material, but they aredesi§ned fOi, instruction within the school environment.''Some concepts learned in roek climbing can be appliedto many.otherfacets of life. One such concept is the Ability to function under stress.Stress is when there is sufficient apprehension on the part of,the pticipant to require extraordinary measures to maintain an organized functioning. When in a stressful situation,-the climber has an opportunity tOre-evaluate and discover'himself,and his potentialities. This processcan be uMized in everyday life. Some studies have revealed the potential importance of rock climbing:Smith's study Of the Outward Bound Program, although more than ,arOck climbing dburse, showed'a positive impact on the participants' selfesteem.,4-Davis discovered that overcoming fear during rock climbing resultedin new levels of self-awareness and self-cbnfidence: He noted, however,that the fear must be overcoMe and transformed into enthusiasm before,self-awareness and self-actualization would occur.:There haVe been Many studies conducted relative to the effects ofoutdoor adventure programs, but few limited to rock climbing. Researchis desperately needed in this Area.10TIM ROCK CLIMBING TEACIkNO GUIDE0I;

4.PHILOSOPk.44To 'engage in a rock climbing endeavor necessitates making someserious decisions.It has been this author's experience that.it is mucheasier, mbre functional end safer to teach a fewconcepts well,than many supeficially. .That is, it is.safer end less.compliCated toknow.two or three basic kdots welltthan many vaguely. Prime is always a,problem id conduttingla course like rotk climbing, -Aich requires flexibility within the structured framewoq of e school day. The.teachingrate'can only be ,as fast as the individual student's assimilation; theinstructton must be "open-ended" to provide additional challenge-for:the accelerated ttudent'as well as additionarassistance for less skilledparticipants.SUccesS of any program will be proportional to the enthusiasm of the instructor.This is nOt only true of rock climbinginstruction, INt of.all areas of education.Hence, the prerequisiteifor; such e task is.teachi6r enthusiasm.OBJECTIVES0The readers should ev,.aluate their motiations for reading this text.7rue introspection will reveal if they should proceed with activelyI/teaching rock Climbing, or if they should continue with more faMiliarteaching endeavors. That is, is rock climtpirg the vogue thing to do ordoes it offer meaningf0 experienceS for .students? If the movement ofactivities to the outdoors is simply the-"in" thing to do, then perhapsthe efforts of the reader and subsequent-financial support by the'lnstio'tution Might better,be allocated elsewhere.Let's examine possible psychologital and physiCal skills Conceptslearned through rock climbing.Concepts, for our.pdrposes , are ideas theparticipant might apply to other activities of life. It has been theauthor's experience that climbing does contribute to the realization ofthese concepts to varying degrees.,Psychological ConcepsDevelop'moderate amounts of stress to'gain iniight about oneselfand others.Modera e emounts of stress edcourage self-evaluation and the'reappraisal of relatIonships with others.Hence, a certain amount of adversestimuli 'functionsasf an aid for an individual to reach the "homeostatic"state with his envi onment.Overcoming fear opens horizons for new learning. Golant and2.Burton, in a surVey study, found that most people avoided environmentsl.".An which they had no experience with its pbssible hazards; people areafraid of the unknown. People who come through the fear may lesgen their,perception,of vulnerability.t3. ,Developing self-confidence is possible by overcoming personal -,.fear%This was one of the conclusions as brought forth by the Davis(previously mentiged). study.4.Self-co4cepts can be improved through new outdoor discoveries.1Koepke discovered that 44 participants' serf\concepts improved and they.mosOPHYANDowscrigs.

0SAFETY.It ill paramount thitsafety concepts, rules, and procedures bestrictly taught and adhered to. Before embarking upon,the taSk of teachingrock climbing to beginners) the nstructor must ask himself severalquestions:1.' Are the benefits of the concepts imputant enough for the'students to warranf instructional physical riFks for the teacher?"2, Is the'instructor wfllInTto teach all the safety aspects aswell as 011 the "fun" Concepts?'1.Is the instruCtor willing to take total" command of theinstruction to insure safetyr4. Is he instructor milling to risk his own safety before taking-student risks?5.Is the instructor willing to spend extra time to inventoryand inspect equipment?06.Is the instructor willing to extend his patience with slowerand more cautious students.k4. Finally,,does the instructor reallywant to go through with this?.,,If the instructdr's answers to the above questions are "yes," thenhe should proceed. This might Appear to be a dIscouraging approach toa new iFtivity, and it PoSsibly is for those who'are not fully sincere/cognizant!of rock climbing "reality. )3bvigusly, the writer feels strong)yconcerning the need for these inquiries; however each sessjon necessitates're-evaluation and recommitment. It perchance the jnstrucfor rebctsnegatively, then heshould Proceed no further in that students' Securitymight be in question.A poov approach to teaching safety is to sermonize to the studentson the.opening day of class as to what the rules are. First, they willnot be familiar with,the equipment and might not even know the names ofclimbing paraphernalia; hence, confusion will occur. A better apProachis to emphasiZe safety as.the students become.familiar with the equipMentand the concept goals; the'students will understAnd the safety rationalemore fullj/., learn the safety concepts more quicgly, and cooperate more.effectively. Students are not necessattly interested in "what has to bebul more Interested in "why something has to bd done." Therefore demonstrations and a reasoning approach is more functional.It is imperative that climbing not be taught on a "one-shotb oreXpeMential basis, Several.seSslons will be required'before an adtualclimb with any degrt of exposure is-attempted; patience on the part ofthe instructor is n .esSary. 'Before venturing fO the outdoors for an"actual"rock climb', all the safety aspects should be,well described bythe ingructor and fully aSsimilated by the students. Safety mustbecome a teader and pupil,habit.!'.1Maximum security .can only be insured by safe equipment, proper'instruction, reasonable rules, and.safe outing procedures. .

safety.For example, all instruction should be kept simple and easy to,understand. ,Therg is 6 need for,an instructor to "dazzle" the student'withknowledgi; this only confuses and discourages students. Thismanual will emphasize the concept that simplicity enhances learning andinsures safety.One of the most complicated aspects of this sport .is that of knottying; many people have no concept of "what makes a.knot work." There,/are several things the inStructor can do to simplify this task, such atusing'only one or two types of knots. This could be referred to as thePone-knot system."Next, diagrams help greatly. -Thirdly, and as asafety precaution as well, everyone should tie his own knots; this'cannot be overemphasized. The student should be taught to tie a swamibelt or.a bowline around his.own waist without anyone else touching therope/webbing. Only then will'success, pride and security be evident onthe face of the student.The'instructor mus;t exercise some logic when progressing with hisclass,depending upon the locale of instruction. Some areas may offervery little relative to climbin potential; this will necessitate limiting.the 'instruction to match the area. Very soft, sedimentary rock areas willnot offer much safe.climbing, hence the emphasis in these areas,should beupon rappeling, knots, and'rope techniques. Seldom is this the casesince careful ,inspection wtll reveal a safe area.for climbing.tt's important, no matter what aredis used for instrUction, thatproper rappeling and climbing procedures and signals are used. Eachstudent should be individually checked to insure safety. Without proper'communication, climbing will be confusing, discouraging, and dangerous.The proper procedures and'signals will be detailed later.It is only'mentione now beCause of its.safety,implication.Be.use. climbing i§ a decision-making process,-the student shOuld be.the one who makes the decition Whether to climb/rappel or not.No4nethod fcoeinion Or force will make a climber of an individual; manystuden s requtre additional time for introspection before attempting toclimb/ appel.Teacher patience is a prime-importance; allowing studentsto th nk things out and review their own motivations will build the students' character more than forcing them to'climb/rappel. The psychologicalconcepts sought should be instilled'in the mind of,the instructor.Re-lated to this.is the problem of "over-teaching or rover-coaching" the, student. Often, the instructor is'overly intent on providing success forthe student apd insists On telling the student where to place each hand pndfoot as the Uddent progresses up the obstacle: Again, the teacher would bemaking all'the decisions. When a "top appe" (that will be discussed/later) is u4ed and the student loses his'hipport, the fall willsonly beabout two fept.
