Skills and Techniques Course


Get your climbing off to a great start ~ strength is not everything!

New to climbing and wondering how climbers make it look so easy, so fluid, so natural when yours feels so clunky by comparison?

It’s simply because “strong” climbers have a solid foundation of skills and techniques that are complimented by specific climbing strength that makes them look so fluid.  For new climbers, the starting point is getting the basic techniques right; strength comes with more climbing and frequency on the wall.

Get off to a great start with the Skills and Technique Course!

The Introduction to Climbing Beginners Course is aimed at people new to the sport of climbing, looking to get a positive start with their climbing.  It is also a great start to formal training for beginner-intermediate climbers aiming to eradicate bad habits and encourage good ones.
