To get to the top, you have to climb!

Ante up the intensity of your climbing! Learn to sport climb in a safe environment. The clinic will cover the basics of lead belaying, clipping, leading, and safe falling. Climbers must be able to climb at the 5.9 level and be belay endorsed. Completion and endorsement of the course will permit the climber to lead on the ARC rock climbing wall at the discretion of the staff.

This clinic will give you the experience and knowledge you need to be able to get outside and climb natural surfaces!
