Introduction to Bouldering - Rock Climbing Class

Description: Set the ropes aside and launch into the exciting world of bouldering! Join our professional climbing instructors for a day introducing you to outdoor bouldering, spotting falls, and advanced body movement to get you to the top of your climbs. This course is for people of all skill groups, from those looking to take their gym skills outside to those looking for their first climbing experience with a minimum of hassle over gear. Intro to Bouldering is designed to function as essentially a change of venue or a progression option for our Rock Climbing Technique and Refinement class. While the morning will focus on spotting, falling, and learning to manage your own risk while climbing outside, the later portion of the class will focus on the dynamic and powerful movement techniques of bouldering. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.

Skills you'll learn:

  • To reinforce the basic safety concepts spotting with a focus on route planning and site awareness
  • To review and develop basic climbing foot, hand, and body positioning
  • To practice personal climbing movement.
