Climbing School

Advance Lead Clinic


Strenuous and demanding, this clinic is for climbers who have been sport leading at least 4 weeks. Identify your weaknesses in strength, route finding or repertoire of moves. Expect to climb hard, long and repetitively. (Previous rest day strongly recommended). Be prepared to climb smoother, clip quickly, recognize rests, read sequences faster. Efficiency = gracefulness. Topics to be covered are:

  • Climbing and clipping - stabilized stances
  • Climbing with control - mental focus - route reading
  • Footwork to save energy - dynamic movement
  • Strength builders

This is better than chicken soup. The clinic goes for 2 1/2 hours and is limited to four students for the max in personal attention. Call to secure your place, advance registration is required.

At least 4 weeks sport leading experience; rest day prior to lesson.
