WHY TAKE OUR WORKSHOPS?

We are about sharing information, teaching skills and growing the community safely. Some people like an activity to be lead or guided, we offer that too. But these workshops are about empowering the climber with knowledge. We teach the skills you need to get out there and climb harder, and improve safety for yourself and others around you. Our workshops are structured in a way that the information is compounding, constantly building on what you just learned, or learned in a previous workshop. We understand that you are thirsty for knowledge and we will give you everything we have to quench your thirst.


THIS IS A REFRESHER WORKSHOP

In this rock climbing refresher workshop, we will be doing a mock trad lead with critiques of placements and trad anchors, as well as practice cleaning and organizing your gear for leads.

PRE-REQUISITE WORKSHOP

You can not take this refresher workshop until you have taken the initial Trad Placements and Techniques Workshop. During the registration process you will be required to enter the date that you took the initial workshop.

Prior to registering, please take the time to find the date that you took the initial workshop so that you can quickly proceed through the check out process.


OUR EXPECTATIONS FROM YOU

The concepts in these workshops can be difficult to apply after only seeing and practicing them one time. These refresher rock climbing workshops are set up to help you train on the most difficult concepts from their origin workshops.

Please arrive well rested, on-time, and ready to jump right into practical skills work.


Our team of professional rock climbing guides are trained and certified by the American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA), to ensure that you're having the best educational experience, both fun and safe, possible.
