When it comes to bigger climbs it pays to be efficient. To become proficient not only requires practice but knowledge on how to deal with the many novel situations we find ourselves when climbing. By adding skills to your tool box people can climb multipitch routes more efficiently which means less time exposed to mountain hazards. Being a safer climber also requires one to know how to handle problems or emergencies, even more so on climbs more than a rope length off the ground. Learning how to build anchors quickly, belay in ways that enhance safety, and what to do when there are problems help climbers avoid having minor problems or injuries turn into major epics or helicopter rides. While climbing is inherently risky a class on how to increase your margin of safety is wise insurance.
For those who have experience leading but want to try more complicated objectives or get into bigger climbing objectives the ability to manage multipitch techniques and the knowledge of self rescue skills are extremely important skills and may save you or a partners life.
