Learn to rock climb with us! Each Skills Seminar presents a critical piece of climbing knowledge in a digestible, single-serving form. Seminars are broken down into technique classes focused on improving physical skills, and technical classes focused on introducing core outdoor skills.

Placing Trad Gear

‘Trad’ gear is removable climbing protection. We’ll show you passive and active trad gear, including spring loaded camming devices, tri-cams and nuts/stoppers. You’ll get practice with properly placing, removing and assessing ‘trad’ gear.

Schedule: Feb. 7, Mar. 20, May. 1 @6:30-8:30pm.

Price:  Non-members: $40/class. Members receive one free seminar a month and can sign up for unlimited classes for $50/month.

The Fine Print: Minimum of 2 participants needed. For members, a $20 refundable reservation fee will be charged to encourage attendance and maximize program availability for the entire community. Members will be charged $20 when they make a Skills Seminar reservation – however, it will be entirely refunded when they either attend the seminar or if they cancel more than 48 hours in advance.
