Take your climbing to the next level!
Do you enjoy climbing but feel like you your development has plateaued? New to climbing and mystified about what a gaston or dyno is, but interested in finding out? Want to meet new people who share your passion for climbing? Returning after a break and need to polish your technique? Then Peak Performance – Basics is for you! There are three great 2.5 hour clinics and you can purchase them individually or as a series (and save!):
- FOOTWORK BASICS
- Efficient footwork is the basis of all good climbing technique, which is why we begin the Technique Basics series with this class. Climbers of all ability levels will benefit from the drills and exercises taught in this clinic. The instructor will cover foot placement, balance, when and how to switch feet, edging, smearing and stemming. You will learn to flow effortlessly from foothold to foothold. After you take this class, you will really know what to do when some tells you to “use your feet!”
- HANDHOLDS AND BODY POSITION
- So now you know how to use your feet, what about the rest of your body? And how do you actually flow through the climbing sequences? In this clinic, you will learn to utilize the different types of hand holds you run across when you climb, including those dreaded slopers, underclings, edges, side pulls, pockets and pinches. You will also learn why you want to rest on straight arms, how to back step, and how to sequence hand holds for best results.
- PHYSICAL CONDITIONING
- It is very important to develop good climbing technique early on, but you will probably get to a point where you feel you need more strength in order to climb your projects. Training for climbing can be complicated, and it’s easy to lose motivation. So let us help! Come to our Physical Conditioning class for a real, climbing specific workout. This won’t be a talking class, so come dressed to exercise and bring water!We recommend that you take them in order as the skills do build on each other from month to month, but you are free to pick and choose individual classes in whatever order works for you.
