Online Climbing Clinics

Written By

Monday, Wednesday + Friday Evenings

Just because we have to practice social distancing, doesn’t mean we can’t also teach some climbing skills. Every Monday at 8pm, Wednesday at 6pm and Friday at 7pm, we will host free online clinics for our members.

Our experienced, professional, and AMGA certified climbing instructors will lead a different clinic – from clipping and un-clipping quickdraws to hauling and raising systems. These clinics will be taught virtually via Google Meet with sign-in links and instructions emailed with registration.

Clinics are FREE for members but space is limited so be sure to SIGN-UP early to claim your spot and take advantage of this cool member perk!

Registration for each clinic will be made available 6 days in advance of the scheduled date.

Cancellations + No-Shows

Because the response to these clinics has been very popular, we ask you to do your absolute best to show up for the clinic you register for. If you cannot make it, please cancel as soon as possible so that we can open up the space for others.
