CLINIC DESCRIPTION

So you have been climbing and absolutely love it. Now you are looking for a way to gain more independence and climb outdoors on your own terms. This clinic will cover equipment needs, site assessment for climbing and anchoring potential, and construction of knots and climbing anchors utilizing trees, boulders, and artificial bolts. You will learn to troubleshoot issues that can complicate a day of top roping, such as navigating the cliff edge, tricky cliff-top access, descent options, and rope management.
