Clinic Description

Saturday: You’ve seen the gear and wondered how it works? Maybe you think placing traditional protection on lead is intimidating and less secure? This clinic will start with a thorough discussion, demonstration and practice of placing passive and active traditional rock protection. Once comfortable placing gear on the ground, you’ll expand into the vertical environment. Leading principals, anchors, route setup and cleaning are all discussed and practiced. Participants will mock lead while an instructor ascends a fixed line and provides live feedback on each of your placements.

Sunday: Day 2 of the traditional lead climbing clinic will pick up where you left off on day 1, while allowing you to be in the driver’s seat a bit more. Decision points will surface during gear selection and racking, finding stances for placing protection, protecting traverses for both leader and follower, route-finding, building and equalizing anchors and much more. Spend Day 2 taking initiative, seeking more tips and tricks and grasping great next steps and routes as you journey beyond the climbers’ fest!
