Womens Basic Rock Climbing

Womens Basic Rock Climbing

Join us to explore the adventure and excitement of rock climbing in a close and supportive community. Whether it is to develop grace and coordination, reach a deeper sense of personal achievement, learn technical skills, or to share in a challenging activity, rock climbing is a dynamic sport that is drawing ever-increasing numbers of women. We will focus on techniques to encourage efficiency, build confidence, enhance fluidity, and develop awareness. The class is open to all women - no experience necessary. In addition to teaching skills and techniques, and providing a supportive atmosphere, we will also emphasize the development and celebration of women as climbers. This class is similar to Basic Rock Climbing in all other respects. Graduates of this class will be certified to belay at the Lindseth Climbing Wall. Attendance Policy: You may miss one class and still receive credit.
