Our Progressions Class picks up where Intro to Climbing leaves off. This one-hour clinic provides a broader overview of basic climbing concepts and an introduction to bouldering. Participants learn about climbing grades, shoe technology, basic movement techniques, and bouldering/spotting safety.
The Progressions Clinic is designed to provide participants new to indoor climbing a fuller picture of the styles and disciplines of climbing, then build on those skills each session that you attend. If you are not new to climbing, this one-hour clinic provides climbing concepts and training for when you have hit that plateau and want to reach your full potential.
Learn all about indoor rope climbing with our Above the Bolt class. This two-part class should come after you have successfully completed our Intro to Climbing and Progressions classes, and we recommend that participants are comfortable climbing a 5.7 on top rope.
The first two-hour session covers the intricacies of lead climbing, including clipping quick-draws correctly. Session two concentrates on safe belaying, efficient energy conservation and how to take a lead fall. A strong emphasis will be placed on efficiency and risk management.
After taking this course most participants should successfully pass our Lead Climbing Check.
Participants will learn to belay a leader, including feeding rope, braking, and lowering.
