Our Skill Building and Enrichment workshop is designed to give folks a head start on the coming Spring climbing season so they can hit the rocks with confidence! This is a 3 hour long instructional session held indoors, that will focus on reviewing and practicing the essentials of basic anchor building, climbing fundamentals, and a variety of skills to strengthen your game out at the crag.
The topics we will cover are likely to include Fixed and Removable anchor principles, Proper gear/hardware use, Proper application of a variety of basic climbing techniques, and really any other topics of interest. This course is designed to be casual and fluid, which will allow instructors to cater to a variety of topics and give students the opportunity to practice the skills that they personally need to progress. Along with a generalized focus on anchors, participants will be exposed to many of the fine skills of the art; rope coiling methods, carabiner clipping methods, gear racking pros/cons, climbing day-pack essentials, etc.
If you have questions, this is the perfect opportunity to ask a certified professional and gain thoughts and perspectives that have been tempered with hard earned experience. Remember folks, Youtube is cool, but not-dying is way cooler.
The course structure will include group discussions/demos, but will be mostly hands-on so that participants can problem solve their own challenges, gain muscle memory, and thoroughly familiarize themselves with the material.
