This isn ARGC that is running at a 2:1 ratio and is only 8 days long.

This program will begin in Unaweep Canyon, CO and transfer to the Black Canyon. 

The course will start in Unaweep Canyon where there is excellent 1-4/5 pitch cimbing to begin the program. Mid course, the program will transfer to the Black Canyon (less than two hour drive time).

The Black Canyon is noted for big walls, adventurous climbing and epics. While there is no shortage of run outs, loose rock, poison ivy and commitment, there are also mega classics with splitter cracks and solid rock, and these are the routes that we will be seeking on this ARGC. The grades are consistant with every trad area in the country. 

The classic routes are traveled frequently and are free of choss. There are few fixed anchors but there are spacious ledges and abundant protection on the classics. This stated, you are likely to have most routes to yourself, allowing you to focus on your climbing and guiding, and not on the other people vying for the same route. The camping on the North Rim is amazing, and is considered one of the best campgrounds at any climbing area. 

The Black offers a great venue for aspiring guides to dial in their techniques and apply their craft in an area where efficiency, security and skill are paramount. Taking your ARGC in the Boulder/Black venue will help expose you to different venues and rock types in your AMGA progression and help set you up for success during your RGE.
