Technique Classes

Ever wonder how the best locals and pros climb so dang well? Why not take the time and grab yourself a technique class. From proper footwork to body position, our technique classes will make a beginner breeze through V0s and V1s like they are child's play. No more will you sit at the bolder wall around locals and not understand a thing they say. From your first private lesson you will begin to learn and understand all the terminology and get a better understanding for the sport and your body. Not only do we teach techniques for improving your climbing experience, but we also show you different types of exercises to improve your core strength, grip power and overall endurance.

Have experience?

No worries, we can help improve your techniques and get you into the next level of climbing that you want to be at. Our personal technique trainers have over 15 years of experience in dealing with bouldering, sport and traditional climbing techniques. Why not take advantage of their knowledge?

Lead Climbers:

If you are already proficient in lead climbing and wish to lead climb in our facility, you must meet the requirements and still take the class. We take safety very seriously at our facility and want to certify everyone according to our standards to make sure you maintain the most amount of safety as possible.

Additional Information:

All classes are by appointment only. Please call in advanced to setup an appointment. Again, even if you are lead climbing capable, we do require you take the class to lead climb at our facility. If you have any questions or wish to protest this so you can lead climb in our facility, please call us or come visit us; we are more than happy to talk to you about lead climbing and maybe we can work with you without the need to take the class, but please respect our final decision if we decide against you not taking the class. We are very easy going and can work with people most of the time.
